The Indian government is urging UK authorities to deport individuals involved in the vandalization of the Indian High Commission in London last week. Some of those involved held Indian passports and claimed asylum in the UK, citing political persecution, but are part of the Khalistani separatist movement and have been involved in attacks against members of the Indian diaspora in the UK and elsewhere. Avtar Singh Khanda, a prominent leader of the movement who sought asylum in the UK, was arrested for vandalizing the premises of the Indian High Commission. The government wants to hold these individuals accountable and bring them back to India to investigate their involvement in the protests. The government has also urged the UK government to deport them back to India as soon as possible. Some of those involved with the separatist movement also have British passports, according to a separate report by CNN-News18. Khanda is also behind the radicalization of Sikh youths overseas and is the “main handler” of Amritpal Singh, a radical separatist preacher who attacked Punjab police officials in Ajnala after one member of Waris Punjab De, the separatist group led by him, was arrested. Amritpal Singh is a fugitive and police officials in Punjab, Haryana, and Uttarakhand remain on alert.
