Dera Sacha Khand

Defendants wait for the start of their trial at Vienna's main court, Austria. Six men entered a place of worship for an Indian Ravidass religious community on May 24, 2009 and started firing. A Sikh preacher was killed and more than a dozen others were wounded - including a second Sikh cleric - during the May 24 incident. The rampage triggered riots in several cities in northern India.
