“After receiving a report from the Foreign Office on the incident at the Indian High Commission in London on March 19, 2023, the Home Ministry has asked the Delhi Police to take appropriate legal action,” an official statement said.

The case has been registered under the appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) and Public Property Act (PDPP).

Officials said the special team had opened an investigation into the incident as it involved illegal activities by certain individuals who held Indian citizenship abroad.

The Indian community held a large rally in front of the Indian High Commission in London on March 19 to oppose the “disrespect” of the Indian flag by Khalistan supporters and demanded that London Mayor Sadiq Khan and the British government take action against the perpetrators at the earliest .

The desecration of the Indian flag has resulted in an unprecedented outpouring of support from the diverse Indian community settling in the UK.

Expats from across the UK traveled to London to express their solidarity with the Indian flag and Indian unity. The rally dismissed Khalistan’s idea outright, saying there was no taker.

A pro-Khalistan protester in London climbed onto the balcony of the Indian High Commission and pulled down the Indian flag. Video of the same incident went viral on social video. In the now widely circulated video, Khalistani protesters can be seen trying to pull down the Indian flag from a balcony. At the end of the video, another man reaches the balcony from inside to avoid further damage to the flag. (Arnie)
