Modi misled by military on 'surgical strikes': Asif

Theresa May and Modi at the Francis Crick Institute in London

"They want British police officers and protesters to be immediately punished and have demonstrated they are more concerned about the removal of the Indian flag than recognising and addressing the atrocities committed in India on a daily basis that the protesters were highlighting".

Rudrendra Tandon, joint secretary in the external affairs ministry, said: "The overall objective of the Prime Minister's participation at this Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting (is signalling) our stepped up engagement with the Commonwealth".

Anti-Indian protestors, including Pro-Khalistan protestors from the Sikh Federation UK and members of the so-called "Minorities Against Modi" group, led by Pakistani-origin peer Nazir Ahmed, were among hundreds of protesters who gathered outside Downing Street where PM Modi met his British counterpart Theresa May.

The UK government has apologized for the act, replaced the flag and is taking action against the perpetrators, said a source from the Indian government.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police in United Kingdom said that the police are investigating the case. Anti-Modi protesters raised banners which read "Modi, you have blood on your hands" and "Modi Not Welcome", reported news agency PTI.

"We are deeply anguished with the incident involving our national flag at Parliament Square".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in New Delhi on Saturday morning after completing his three-nation Europe tour for which he left on Monday, 16 April. The UK side has regretted the incident.

"We called them [in order to tell them about the surgical strikes] but we they were scared to come on phone [so] I kept the journalists waiting", PM Modi said, referring to a September 29, 2016 press conference that was called by the Army.

The demonstrators from Sikh Federation UK and "Minorities Against Modi" group, led by Pakistani-origin peer Lord Ahmed, were among almost 500 protesters who were present at the parliament Square.
