London: Following the capture of Khalistani leader Amritpal Singh, some pro-Khalistani groups ransacked and supplanted the Indian High Commission’s Tricolour in London.
A valiant Indian official retaliated by not only resisting but also returning the tricolour.
On Sunday, during a protest by Khalistan supporters at the High Commission of India in London, a protestor climbed the mission’s balcony and tore down the Indian flag.
A man is seen on the balcony lowering the Indian flag in a video of the incident. Toward the end of the video, a man believed to be an Indian official emerges from the mission and grabs the flag before the protestor can do any more vandalism.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court issued a notice to the Punjab government on Sunday regarding a habeas corpus petition seeking the “release” of radical preacher Amritpal Singh from alleged illegal police custody.
The development coincides with the Punjab Police action against the Khalistan sympathiser and members of his outfit ‘Waris Punjab De’.

Khara also alleged that the police wants to kill Singh in a “fake encounter”. Advocate Khara has approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court with a writ petition, citing a threat to Amritpal Singh’s life. “I filed a criminal writ petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court today (Imaan Singh Khara vs State of Punjab). This is a writ of Habeas Corpus “He told ANI news agency.
Khara, Amritpal’s legal advisor, and his organisation ‘Waris Punjab De,’ detected a threat to Amritpal’s life.
If the detainee is found to be in illegal custody, the petitioner requested the appointment of a warrant officer to visit the location.
Khara also requested that the habeas corpus petition for Amritpal Singh’s “release” from alleged police custody be granted. Because it was a holiday, the hearing was held at Justice N S Shekhawat’s residence (camp office).
