Agency News

London, Sep 5: India's High Commissioner to UK Ruchi Ghanashyam met DG (Political) Foreign and Commonwealth Office about violent protest of September 3 by 'Pakistan incited elements' that resulted in vandalisation of the High Commission office.

"DG said physical damage to High Commission property was completely unacceptable," a tweet from the High Commission said. The DG also said that the safety and security of all diplomatic missions and their staff are of utmost concern to the United Kingdom. India on Wednesday "strongly" urged the Government of UK to take action against those involved in vandalising Indian High Commission Office in London and blamed 'Pakistan incited elements' for the same.

"We consider these incidents (attack on Indian High Commission office) to be unacceptable and have strongly urged the Government of UK to take action against those involved, and take necessary steps to ensure the normal functioning of our Mission and the safety and security of our personnel," MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar has said in reply to media queries.

"We are deeply concerned by the reports of unruly demonstration by Pakistan incited elements and consequent organised vandalism of the property of the High Commission of India in London. This is the second time in a less than a month that such an incident has taken place affecting the security and the normal functioning of our Mission," he has said.

In fresh incidents, Indian High Commission was attacked by protestors on Tuesday. Earlier such violent protest took place on August 15.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on August 20 taken up the matter of protest on August 15 with his British counterpart Boris Johnson. UNI
