India has been assured by the British government that it has taken cognizance of the ‘protest’ near Indian High Commission and in future such protestors will not be allowed to assemble.

“We have got indications from the British government that they are aware about our concerns in this regard. They are also aware about how this entire procession went out of control,” MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters here.

He said the UK government are taking ‘adequate steps’ to prevent recurrence of such incidents. “Obstacles were created in the normal functioning of the High Commission. We have kept our perspective in front of the British government,” he said.

“We have said that we are deeply concerned that again such planning is being done”.

The Indian government has asked the British government to take all necessary steps so that the events of the past are not repeated and the functioning of the High Commission is not affected.

Clashes took place in September after thousands of protesters led by British Pakistani groups staged the protest in London against the scrapping of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. (UNI)
