1989 Sirdar Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh hanged for gunning down Indira Gandhi. As Prime Minister of India, she had ordered the June 1984 attack on Harimandir Sahib by the Indian Armed Forces.

Sardar Satwant Singh and Sardar Kehar Singh were hanged till death. They were co-accused with Sardar Beant Singh for gunning down Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984. Sikh Panth holds Indira Gandhi, then Prime Minister of India, responsible for the dessicration of Harminder Sahib in 1984's Bluestar operation.

Lord Gifford, a forner judeg and member of Britain's House of Lords, was deeply shocked by the death sentence because the execution took place on highly ambiguous and speculative circumstances. Furthermore, a committee consisting of retired judges, several lawyers and writers of India were of the opinion that these executions will be a source of undying shame to India.
