In smoldering cities across India, the death toll passed 1,000 in four days of anti-Sikh rioting that erupted after Prune Minister Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh security guards, according to police and Indian news media reports Between 200 and 350 men, women and children mostly Sikhs were massacred in a single 20-hour onslaught on a poor New Delhi neighborhood, new s reports said The new government, under Mrs Gandhi’s son, Rajiv, came under heavy criticism for failing to control the carnage. In the sundown cremation ceremony beside holy river Yamuna, climax to a solemn three-hour funeral procession through this capital, the grieving Rajiv Gandhi first walked seven tunes around the log-stacked bier where his mother’s body lay. then gently touched a blazing torch to her head and feet Hindu priests chanted mantras, and the yellow flames flickered higher, gradually engulfing the red sari-clad remains of the woman who had dominated political life here for two decades. Some 400,000 sorrowful Indians thronged the riverside site. and dozens of presidents, premiers and other foreign dignitaries, including Secretary of State George P.

Steve Earl Putman, 25, and Pain Sturm, 36, both of San Antonio, and Bill Wright, 60, of Welfare, were taken to McKenna Memorial Hospital by New Braunfels Emergency Medical Service personnel around 8 p.m. Wright suffered an inch-long laceration on his forehead, while Putman and Sturm both complained of neck pains en route to the hospital. A hospital spokesman said Sturm and Wright were treated and released, but as of presstime Saturday night, Putman’s status was “pending further examination.” The spokesman also said Putman was stabilized. Both vehicles were damaged in the accident. A Buick Skylark, driven by Putman, had rear-end damage and the front end of the Datsun Centura, driven by Wright, wa.s damaged. The cars were traveling westbound on the frontage road, according to police officer Mike Rust.
