India demands legal action sought over United Kingdom protests

The journalist said that she was intimidated by the protesters when she approached them with her question. A UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said, they are disappointed with the action taken by a small minority in Parliament Square.

According to him, most of the protesters were activists of the pro-Khalistani Sikh Federation UK, a group called "Minorities Against Modi" led by Pakistani-origin peer Nazir Ahmed, and some Kashmiri separatist groups.

Cementing close friendship with Mauritius, Prime Minister Modi met his Mauritius counterpart Jugnauth and talked about cooperation in trade and investment, maritime cooperation and people-to-people ties, Kumar said.

At the launch of the CHOGM executive session at Lancaster House open to the media, British Prime Minister Theresa May said: "The great strength of the Commonwealth is that all our members have equal status, an equal voice, and an equal right to make that voice heard".

The young girl was one of two girls - the other a teenager - who were recently victims of rape in India.

She added, "When I spoke to Prime Minister Modi, we discussed how we can encourage and increase the links and development between our two countries".

In a sharp attack on Pakistan during his speech in London, PM Modi asserted that he would not tolerate those who "run an industry of exporting terror and kill innocent Indians".

Afzal Khan, Labour MP from Manchester, mentioned the protests and asked her: "This week, the United Kingdom becomes the chair of the Commonwealth". It is the other way around and India is backing terrorists in Pakistan. "That will be the way to resolve it that will actually ensure the sustainability of a resolution". "We expect legal action against the people who were involved in this".

Senior Spokesperson for INC Anand Sharma told reporters that the premier made "boastful" claims about alleged surgical strikes across the border which were "embarrassing" as India continued to lose officers and soldiers to terrorism. The Commonwealth is a digression for India because of the unsavoury optics of being part of a parochial club, especially at a time when it wants to be taken seriously as a world power.

The awful details of the suffering that the young girl had undergone before her death in January came out this month when the police filed charges against the eight accused, inducing national fury.
