UK role in India Golden Temple assault ‘very limited’: probe

LONDON: British military advice had a “very limited” impact on India’s 1984 Amritsar Golden Temple assault that left 500 dead, a government investigation found on Tuesday.
Foreign Secretary William Hague told parliament that the probe, ordered after newly-released documents revealed an elite British officer had advised New Delhi on plans for the raid, had concluded that the British advice had “limited impact on the tragic events that unfolded at the temple three months later.”
