Sanjay Gandhi (son of Indira Gandhi) died in an airplane crash.

Some people believe that his mother conspired to have him killed as the two had some grave ideological differences.

Sanjay Gandhi died in his plane crash, not a commercial plane crash. He had become very powerful although he had no official position in the government. His mother Mrs. Gandhi's plane was rigged and she survived as it was detected. Later she was killed by her own body guards. Rajiv Gandhi was also assassinated. his wife Sonia, although won the leadership did not take up Prime Ministership.

Who killed sanjay Gandhi?

Sanjay Gandhi APPARENTLY died in a plane crash on June 23, 1980 under mysterious circumstances. However it is widely believed and known for a fact that his mother Mrs Indira Gandhi was unable to control his demands and had him killed. Sanjay was a pilot.Sanjay Gandhi's father was NOT Feroze Gandhi but another person by name of Mohammed Yunus. Sanjay's real name was Sanjeev Gandhi. He exercised, a lot of Clout and Power over his hapless mom by keeping that secret . He also had a very modern version of India and took bold steps to control its population explosion (which was was attributed primarily to the exponential growth of Moslem community. Backdrop of this is - India is the land of REVERSE DISCRIMINATION. What is that ? Put it in context - In India if you are a Moslem you can marry legally 4 times and illegally as many times as you want and produce countless children. If you are a Non Moslem and try to do that - it becomes ILLEGAL.You will be jailed . The skewed increase in Moslem population was the sole basis on which the ruling party , called Indian National Congress seized power for 70 years. ) . Sanjay took the 1st step to reduce a wasting population by instilling sterilization measures . It was done in national interest but proved to be a political jeopardy for Congress party that relied on Moslem votes. For Mrs Gandhi Power came anytime before family. So she had him killed.When Indira learnt of Sanjay's death her first question was, 'Where are his keys and his wrist watch?' Were some deep secrets about the Gandhi-Nehru dynasty hidden in those objects? (An unbiased pamphlet published in the interest of Indian society, Author: R. V. Bhasin, Advocate, Supreme Court)There were futile attempts made earlier on to kill Sanjay.From the Times of India : Article - 19485275.cms"NEW DELHI: There were three assassination attempts on Sanjay Gandhi, a key figure during the Emergency, including one where a high powered rifle was used when the leader was visiting UttarPradesh, a US cable outed by WikiLeaks has claimed.In a September 1976 dispatch, the US embassy reported the then prime minister Indira Gandhi's younger son was targeted by an unknown assailant in a "well planned assassination attempt" which failed. The date suggests the incident occurred during the Emergency."Indira Gandhi's son Sanjay was shot three times on August 30 or 31 by an unknown assailant," the cable says, attributing the information to a clandestine source. The report says Sanjay escaped and was not critically injured"
