Delhi Police Register Case Over Khalistani Protest at Indian High Commission in London

New Delhi: Delhi Police filed a case in connection with the Khalistani protest held outside the Indian High Commission in London on March 19. The Ministry of Home Affairs directed Delhi Police to take appropriate legal action upon the receipt of a report from the Ministry of External Affairs over the incident at the Indian High Commission on March 19.

This case was registered by the special cell under the Indian Penal Code, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act as it involves unlawful activities carried out by certain people holding Indian nationality abroad.

On March 19, the Tricolour flying atop the Indian High Commission in London was pulled away by a group of separatist Khalistani protestors. Officials from the mission foiled the attempted dishonor of the national flag and a larger Tricolour was now flying “grander” at the London High Commission.

India on Sunday night summoned the British deputy high commissioner and demanded an explanation over the complete “absence of security”. In a strongly-worded statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said India finds “unacceptable” the indifference of the UK government to the security of Indian diplomatic premises and personnel in the UK.
