Indira Gandhi Murdered
While walking home from her office, Indira Gandhi was killed by two of her body guards. Her assassins were Sikh extremists retaliating for the raid she ordered on their shrine in Amritsar, which had resulted in the deaths of over a thousand Sikh separatists. Hindu rioting after the assassination killed more than two-thousand Sikhs.
