Moreover, NIA India also asked locals about their information by saying, “If someone knows about them, Whatsapp/DM them at+917290009373 (sic).”
This week on Monday, NIA India uploaded a CCTV footage of 2 hours in which an attempt to vandalize the Indian High Commission in London by anti-national individuals occurred. In the caption of the footage, NIA requested the public to identify the people seen in the footage.
NIA also released CCTV footage of Khalistan by giving a WhatsApp number and asking for information on the vandalize. They also assure that they will keep the informant’s details secret.
In the video of Khalistan, it seems that the protestor first climbed the balcony of the High Commission of India and then pulled down the Indian flag on March 19. Then the video got viral on social media. Towards the end of the video, a man came out from inside and went to the balcony to prevent further damage to the flag.
The Indian community in London protested against the “disrespectful act” in front of the Indian High Commission in London. Protestors also demanded action against the perpetrators at the earliest. The disrespect shown towards the Indian Flag sparked immense support from the varied Indian community living in Britain.
Many people from different parts of the UK travelled to London to express their solidarity with the Indian Flag. During the gathering, it was made clear that the idea of Khalistan has been debunked, and there are no supporters for it.
Moreover, Delhi police also registered a case on March 24 concerning protests in front of the Indian High Commission in London. Indian External Affairs Minister and Home Affairs Minister asked Delhi Police to take legal action.
