Radical Hindu leader shot dead in India

A radical Hindu religious leader, Sudhir Suri, has been shot dead in north-western India.

The fifty eight year-old was killed yesterday while protesting in Amritsar , home to the world famous Golden Temple, one of the holiest sites in Sikhism.

Mr. Suri was the self-styled leader of the fundamentalist religious group, Hindu Shiv Sena.

Authorities said a local shopkeeper was subsequently arrested in connection with the killing.
