General Brar returns to India after attack
As Lt Gen K S Brar, the Operation Bluestar hero who survived an attack on him in London returned to India on Wednesday, the Centre is looking to relocate him from Mumbai besides enhancing his security to 'Z-plus' category.

Indian agencies were also verifying reports that the plot to attack 78-year-old Lt Gen[retd] Brar on Sunday night in central London may have been hatched in Germany.

Officials in Delhi said the Centre will soon relocate Brar from Mumbai to an undisclosed location, as his security came under spotlight. Brar, who had a bandage on his neck and cheek, and his wife Meena arrived in Mumbai at noon from London. The couple was escorted to their vehicle amid tight security after they were received by defence officials.

A row also broke out after Brar hit out at the ruling Akali Dal in Punjab alleging it was supporting extremist groups prompting Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal to say that the Akalis had suffered at the hands of terrorists. There is nothing to suggest that Brar's assailants had links with Akalis, Badal said. ‘There have been reports that the attack on Gen Brar was planned in Germany on June six on Bluestar operation anniversary. We are ascertaining the facts,’ a security official said in Delhi.
