India has demanded an explanation from the UK government over the “complete absence of British security” that allowed pro-Khalistani elements to enter the Indian High Commission premises in London.
The demand came after a group of Khalistani supporters gathered outside the Indian High Commission and removed the Indian flag while shouting pro-Khalistan slogans. The incident occurred a day after the arrest of pro-Khalistani leader Amritpal Singh.
India has demanded that the perpetrators be immediately arrested and prosecuted and stringent measures be put in place to prevent the recurrence of such incidents.
Videos of the incident were shared widely on social media, prompting outrage from Indian officials. The Indian government also expressed its displeasure with the UK government’s “indifference” to the security of Indian diplomatic premises and personnel in the UK.
