Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who steered the nation for 15 daunting and often turbulent years to bring India on the threshold of greatness, was assassinated this morning on the lawns of her residence here by two of her security guards.

Both the assailants were shot at by the other security guards in the Prime Minister’s house. One of them, sub-inspector Beant Singh, died on the spot while the other, constable Sabwant Singh, is reported to be serious in hospital. Beant Singh had been on security duty at the Prime Minister’s house for eight years.

A pall of gloom spread over the country as reports came that doctors at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences were waging a desperate but losing battle to save Mrs Gandhi’s life. The Prime Minister, who received 16 bullets from an automatic gun and a pistol at point-blank range around 9-15 a.m., passed away at 2-30 p.m.
