After many images on social media showed a Sikh man lowering the flag outside the Indian mission in London, Christina Scott, the deputy high commissioner of the United Kingdom, was called to the foreign affairs ministry late on Sunday night, according to persons acquainted with the situation.
As pro-Khalistan demonstrators tore down the national flag at the Indian high commission in London on Sunday, the external affairs ministry in New Delhi summoned the senior-most British diplomat to express its displeasure.
Several dozen protesters had gathered outside while the hashtag #FreeAmritpal was spray-painted on the premises. The “total absence” of British police, according to India’s foreign office, and “the UK Government’s indifference to the security of Indian diplomatic installations and personnel in the UK” are both unacceptable.
What does official stand on it
“I condemn the deplorable attacks today against the people and premises of the @HCI London – completely unacceptable,” British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis wrote on Twitter.
