Pro-Khalistanis, allegedly supported by Inter-Services Intelligence, attacked a number of British Indians standing outside the Indian High Commission in London.
London: Pro-Khalistani protesters allegedly supported by Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) attacked a number of British Indians who were standing outside the Indian High Commission in London.
The Khalistani group, wearing Sikh turbans, raised slogans ‘Naraa-e-Taqbeer’ and ‘Allah-u-Akbar,’ according to ANI.
They were holding a protest against “atrocities on ethnic minorities in India” and soon there was a counter-protest from groups including the Friends of India Society in the United Kingdom.
The pro-Khalistani protesters attacked a number of British Indians allegedly as a revenge for the anti-Pakistan protests that have been taking place in London since a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama and the Indian airstrikes in Balakot.
Scotland Yard said one man was arrested for “breach of peace” during a face-off between UK-based Kashmiri and pro-Khalistan outfits chanting anti-India slogans and counter protesters chanting pro-Narendra Modi slogans.
The Metropolitan Police said the man was later “de-arrested, with no further action”.
