At least two people have been arrested by the London Police on Wednesday in connection with the violent protests, which were held outside the Indian High Commission premises on Tuesday.

Fresh protests erupted outside the Indian High Commission on Tuesday over the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. The agitation took a violent turn with protestors vandalising portions of the embassy building.

Protests were earlier held outside the Indian High Commission on August 15. The city’s Indian diaspora’s Independence Day celebrations were disrupted by Pakistan-backed protestors and pro-Khalistani elements, who pelted stones and eggs on the embassy building.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned Tuesday's protests, saying it was "unacceptable". He also said that he has raised this incident with police to take action," the Mayor tweeted.

The protests were reportedly organised against the Indian government's move to resolve Article 370, stripping the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
