Chatterjee & Rudra have noted K-T boundary clay through the middle of the 
Deccan Traps, with plentiful dinosaur remains below and none above. They 
attribute the boundary clay and extinction to the asteroid impact that caused 
the so-called Shiva crater, but it could simply be from the Chicxulub impact. 
Or, if there really was a Shiva impact at the same time, to both.
