The Ministry of External Affairs also summoned British Deputy High Commissioner Christina Scott late on Sunday evening after the video of the Indian flag being pulled down went viral online.

The ministry demanded an explanation for the “absence of security” at the High Commission premises and said the UK government’s “apathy” to Indian diplomats and personnel was “unacceptable”. Lord Tariq Ahmed, Britain’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Commonwealth Development, tweeted that he was “appalled” by the attack on the Indian High Commission.
