Golden Temple attack: 'Why was British government involved?'

Lord Indarjit Singh, director of the Network of Sikh Organisations, has questioned why the British government offered advice to India ahead of the 1984 deadly attack on a Sikh temple.

On Tuesday Foreign Secretary William Hague told MPs that British military advice had only a "limited impact" on the storming of the Golden Temple in the city of Amritsar.

Mr Hague said UK assistance was "purely advisory" and given months beforehand.

But Lord Singh said that the British government should not have been offering advice on the raid.
