London: The Indian High Commission in London was vandalised on Tuesday after protests by Pakistani supporters outside the building turned violent.

In a tweet, the Indian High Commission confirmed that the protests by Pakistani supporters had caused damage to the premises as a windowpane of the building was broken.

This comes days after India raised concerns regarding the protests outside the Indian High Commission on August 15 in the UK.

The Indian High Commission, on its official Twitter account 'India in UK', shared a picture of a damaged windowpane of the building. "Another violent protest outside the Indian High Commission in London today, 3 September 2019. Damage caused to the premises."

Responding to the tweet, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said that the attack was "unacceptable". He said, "I utterly condemn this unacceptable behaviour and have raised the incident with Metro Police UK to take action.

As per reports, a group of protesters organised the 'Kashmir Freedom March' which went from Parliament Square to the High Commission building. The protest was led by a few UK Labour MPs as well. The Pakistani supporters in the protest carried flags of the Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and raised slogans such as "Stop shelling in Kashmir" and "We want freedom".

The protesters said that they had gathered to protest against the communication blockade in the Kashmir Valley for the last 30 days since the abrogation of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

With no people to target, the protesters allegedly hurled eggs, tomatoes, shoes, stoned, smoke bombs and bottles at the Indian High Commission building. During the melee, a windowpane was also broken.
