London: Khalistani separatist groups stage protest, threw eggs at Indian Mission
The banned terrorist organisation, Sikhs For Justice, is conducting a so-called “Referendum 2020” amid a crackdown on pro-Khalistan leader Amritpal Singh in Punjab.
Following that, the British deputy high commissioner was summoned and an explanation was demanded over the complete ‘absence of security’.
Meanwhile, in a statement issued on Wednesday, foreign secretary James Cleverly said the British government takes such matters very seriously and would “robustly” respond to the attack as it works with the Metropolitan Police to make changes needed to ensure the security of the mission’s staff.
