Daily Trivia #627

A) The first attempt on X's life was made when a grenade was hurled at his car. The bomb, however exploded under the car behind his car. X continued on his business, gave the speech he was supposed to give and then wanted to check on the victims of the bomb blast. On X's return journey, there was some confusion among the drivers, which led to his motorcade being stalled at one point.

Y (who was among the conspirators of the earlier botched assassination attempt) , was sitting at a cafe across the street, grabbed this opportunity and shot X.

Who were X and Y ? What did this assassination lead to ?
