In a setback, London Police bans massive Kashmiri protests outside Indian High Commission
As per media report, London Police has imposed a ban on British Kashmiri protestors from assembling outside the Indian High Commission on 27th October 2019 when thousands will assemble in London from all over the United Kingdom for a major protest against Indian occupation of Kashmir and the lockdown of the occupied territory following the revocation of Article 370.
It’s understood that Home Secretary Priti Patel lobbied with the Police to get the protest banned outside India House. Prime Minister Boris Johnson had said in the parliament that the Home Secretary will be speaking to the police to address concerns of Indian government.
Under Section 14 Public Order Act 1986, the Scotland Yard has restricted the protestors from taking the procession to outside Indian High Commission a short distance from the Parliament Square.
