, Indian army officer. political Aide-de-camp for the Secretary of State for India and Equery to King Edward VII. In July 1909 an entertainment was given to Indians by the National Indian Association at the Imperial Institute. Lord Morley was to have presided but he was warned by the police not to attend, and Cousin Curzon took his place. The reception was over and Cousin Curzon and Cousin Katie were about to leave the Institute when a student from St. Stephen's College, Delhi, a young fellow called Dhingra, approached them and shook hands. Cousin Katie saw her husband's face light up with pleasure for Dhingra's parents had asked him to keep an eye on him. He knew that Dhingra had been under the influence of Tilak, the leader of the extremist group in Congress and he was glad of the youth's apparently friendly attitude. Cousin Katie moved off to fetch her cloak, leaving her husband talking to Dhingra and a Parsee gentleman. As she went she heard three shots and ran back. She found Cousin Curzon and the Parsee on the floor. The Parsee had stepped forward hoping to save Cousin Curzon and the first shot killed him. The other two shots struck Cousin Curzon.
