The anti-Sikh riots of 1984 marks one of the “darkest” years in modern Indian history, a US senator has said, as he underlined the need to remember the atrocities committed against Sikhs so that those responsible may be held accountable.Violence erupted in Delhi and other parts of the country after former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984. Over 3,000 Sikhs were killed across India, mostly in the national capital.
