India stalls trade talks with Britain over Sikh extremist group -The Times
NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India has pulled out of trade talks with Britain after accusing it of failing to condemn a Sikh militant group that attacked the Indian High Commission in London last month, The Times reported on Monday, citing British government sources.
On March 19, protestors with ‘Khalistan’ banners protested at the High Commission protesting the latest police crackdown in Punjab, pulling down the Indian flag from the building’s first-floor balcony.
“Indians don’t want to talk about trade unless they publicly express their condemnation of Khalistan extremism in the UK,” a Whitehall source told The Times.
