A newspaper says a secret government probe has linked the personal secretary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to her 1984 assassination.

Demanding the government make public its findings, opposition lawmakers forced Parliament to adjourn on Tuesday after the Indian Express newspaper published its account of the inquiry.The paper's account cast suspicion on Rajendra Kumar Dhawan, Mrs. Gandhi's personal secretary when she was shot Oct. 31, 1984, in the garden of her New Delhi residence by two of her Sikh bodyguards.

Dhawan, 52, did not continue in that job after Mrs. Gandhi's son, Rajiv Gandhi, took over as prime minister, but was appointed last month as an officer on special duty in the powerful Cabinet Secretariat.
