An investigation has been launched after Khalistani protesters ripped down the India flag outside the Indian High Commission building in London on Sunday.
A statement from Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said, “An explanation was demanded for the complete absence of the British security that allowed these elements to enter the High Commission premises. She was reminded in this regard of the basic obligations of the U.K. Government under the Vienna Convention,” said an MEA statement issued late at night.
“India finds unacceptable the indifference of the U.K. Government to the security of Indian diplomatic premises and personnel in the U.K.,” the statement added.
Protests have been taking place after a row over Amritpal Singh, chief of ‘Waris Punjab De’, a radical organisation founded by the late actor Deep Sidhu. It was started up “to protect the rights of Punjab and raise social issues”. He has been branded as ‘Bhindranwale 2.0’.
