SIKH EXTREMISTS KILL 24 HINDUS

Indian authorities imposed extra-tight security in most Punjab towns Monday after suspected Sikh extremists killed 24 members of a right-wing Hindu group. Police said extra security men were deployed as Hindu groups called for strikes and protest marches to condemn the killings Sunday in the town of Moga, 100 miles west of Chandigarh, the state capital.

Authorities feared revenge attacks by the right-wing Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh. Sunday's attack was the worst on the Hindu revivalist group by Sikh extremists since they began their violent campaign in 1982.
