British foreign office apologises after Indian flag torn during Modi's visit to UK
A group of Pakistan backed pro-Khalistani and Kashmiri protesters, in the presence of London Metropolitan Police had pulled down the tricolor from a pole.
"While people have the right to hold peaceful protests, we are disappointed with the action taken by a small minority in Parliament Square and contacted High Commissioner Yashvardhan Kumar Sinha as soon as we were made aware," according to Foreign and Commonwealth Office's statement.
The torn flag was later replaced and put up at the Parliament Square with flags of all 53 Commonwealth countries.
The foreign office also mentioned that Prime Minister Modi's visit "has strengthened our relationship with India and we look forward to working even more closely together on a number of important areas."
The Indian Journalist Association has also taken note of the incident and called for a strong action against the wrongdoers.
