Pakistan’s ISI backed Khalistanis attacked a number of British Indians who were standing outside the Indian High Commission in London on March 9. 

Overseas Pakistanis Welfare Council (OPWC) and Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) were blamed for the attack on rival demonstrators from Friends of India Society, UK, who had gathered outside the Indian High Commission in London on Saturday.

In the video, men wearing Sikh turbans can be seen raising slogans “Naraa-e-Taqbeer” and “Allah-u-Akbar”.

The pro-Khalistani protesters attacked a number of British Indians as a revenge for the anti-Pakistan protests that have been taking place in London since a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama and the Indian airstrikes in Balakot.

Scotland Yard said one man was arrested for "breach of peace" during a face-off between UK-based Kashmiri and pro-Khalistan outfits chanting anti-India slogans and counter-protesters chanting pro-Narendra Modi slogans.

The Metropolitan Police said the man was later "de-arrested, with no further action".

No injury during the clash has been reported. Images and videos of the clash have since been posted on social media, with either side blaming the other for turning a peaceful protest violent.
