The Indian High Commission once again was the centre of chaos when the diplomatic office staff threw bottles at the pro-Khalistan — a Sikh separatist movement — protesters Wednesday.

The protest was organised by the Federation of Sikh Organisations and Sikh Youth Organisations, who were demonstrating against the brutality of the Indian police against Sikhs in Indian Punjab.

The protestors from other cities and countries also arrived in London. The echoed with pro-Khalistan slogans, and hundreds of police officers were on duty to protect the diplomatic staff, who were confined in the building.

The police on duty called for more personnel to keep the law and order under control.

Moreover, British foreign minister James Cleverly said the country will review security at the Indian High Commission following “unacceptable acts of violence” towards the mission’s staff.

On Wednesday, The Hindu reported that at least a hundred police officers were standing guard on both sides of the road outside the High Commission in London on Wednesday.

Cleverly said that a police investigation was ongoing after the acts of violence and that the country will make the necessary changes to ensure the safety of the Indian mission’s staff as it did for demonstrations on Wednesday.
