London: The charge in the attack on Lt General (Retired) Kuldip Singh Brar has been downgraded from 'attempt to murder' to 'intent to cause grievous bodily harm'. The charge has been downgraded since the injuries were not life threatening. Two men have been charged in the case. One of them also charged with common assault on Lt Gen Brar's wife.

The four men who attacked Brar were described as being of Asian appearance, all with long beards, and were wearing dark clothing and long black jackets. ...more
