In April 1950 a drunken gurkha soldier killed 22 guests at a wedding in Nainital, India. The man, who was armed with a machete, apparently was enraged by the fact that a low caste money lender married a girl of the higher standing Brahmin caste. All of his victims were members of the Harijan caste.[1][2][3][4]
