At about 9:20 AM on October 31, 1984, Indira Gandhi was on her way to be interviewed by the British actor Peter Ustinov, who was filming a documentary for Irish television. She was walking through the garden of the Prime Minister's Residence at No. 1, Safdarjung Road in New Delhi towards neighbouring 1, Akbar Road office.
As she passed a wicket gate guarded by Satwant Singh and Beant Singh, they opened fire. Sub-Inspector Beant Singh fired three rounds into her from his sidearm, and Satwant Singh then fired 30 rounds from his Sten gun into her prostrate body. After shooting both threw the weapons down and Beant Singh said "I have done what I had to do. You do what you want to do." In the next six minutes Tarsem Singh Jamwal and Ram Saran, soldiers of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, captured and killed Beant Singh inside a separate room. Satwant Singh was arrested by Gandhi's other bodyguards along with an accomplice trying to escape. Satwant Singh was later hanged in 1989 with accomplice Kehar Singh
