Indian general says UK not linked to 1984 Amritsar raid

The Indian general in charge of a deadly raid which took place on the Golden Temple in Amritsar in 1984 has dismissed claims that the UK colluded in the operation.

Lt Gen Kuldeep Singh Brar said: "No one helped us in our planning or in the execution of the planning".

British PM David Cameron has ordered an investigation into an MP's claim that the Thatcher government colluded with India.

MP Tom Watson told the BBC recently that declassified documents showed Britain had advised Delhi on planning the controversial raid, in which hundreds of people died.
