Photographs of 45 people thought to have been involved in the March 19 attack on the Indian High Commission in London have been made public by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The accused are allegedly Khalistani followers, and CCTV images have revealed who they are. Any pertinent information should be submitted over WhatsApp at +91 7290009373, as the NIA is asking for help from the public in identifying these people. The informant’s identity will remain a secret.
The attack on the Indian High Commission was captured on five CCTV footage that were previously made public by the NIA. The video showed the alleged perpetrators assembling outside the embassy before initiating the attack. They were spotted shouting and waving religious flags. The Indian national flag was allegedly taken down during the protest organised by “pro-Khalistani activists” at the Indian High Commission in London, according to a First Information Report (FIR) filed by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police after the incident.The Union Ministry of Home Affairs instructed the Delhi Police to file a lawsuit, at which point the NIA took over the investigation.
“The NIA requests all members of the public to provide any information regarding the individuals seen in the footage in the interest of public safety. Information can be provided on WhatsApp at +91 7290009373. The identity of the informant will be kept confidential,” the agency said while releasing the photographs.
The FIR was filed under appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, and the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act. The Indian government summoned the British Deputy High Commissioner for an explanation, while the British High Commissioner condemned the incident as “disgraceful” and “totally unacceptable.”
