India’s External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar discussed the security of India's diplomatic missions with visiting UK minister Lord Tariq Ahmad.
"Met with UK MoS Lord Tariq Ahmad and underlined the obligation to ensure security of our diplomatic missions and prevent misuse of democratic freedoms," Dr S Jaishankar tweeted.
Later in the day, Lord Ahmad, UK's Minister of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, visited the North Block to meet Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla.
"UK and India share a strong friendship and common values. Had positive discussions with senior officials in Delhi around keeping UK India collaboration on science and technology, trade, justice and G 20," Lord Ahmad tweeted after meeting G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kanth, Chief Coordinator Harsh Singhla and Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla.
According to an NDTV report, the Union Home Ministry has asserted that action needs to be taken against "Pro-Khalistan supporters" responsible for vandalism and destructive acts at the Indian High Commission in London in March.
Earlier this month, a team of National Investigation Agency officials landed in the UK and met officials of Scotland Yard and Metropolitan Police in London.
"Details about suspects and digital evidence related to the attack were discussed," a senior official said.
On March 19, pro-Khalistan protesters broke windows of the High Commission in London and forcibly removed the Indian flag. The incident had led to outrage in India and the foreign ministry had issued a demarche accusing the UK of not providing the mission adequate security despite repeated requests.
In what was seen as a retaliatory gesture, police withdrew security barricades placed outside the British High Commission in New Delhi.
