The son of one of two men who shot dead former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was elected to India’s parliament on Tuesday, election commission figures showed.

Sarabjeet Singh Khalsa’s father was a member of Gandhi’s security team who, along with an accomplice, shot Gandhi dead in her garden in 1984 in retribution for an attack on a Sikh holy shrine earlier that year.
