MEA asks US to prevent pro-Khalistan attacks
Earlier on Sunday, protesters shouting pro-Khalistan slogans broke open the security barriers and installed two Khalistani flags inside the consulate premises. The protest was organized following the arrests of self-styled radical preacher Amritpal Singh's aides by the Punjab Police in India. Following the incident, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) asked the United States government to take necessary measures to prevent such incidents.
