The Ministry of External Affairs said it was satisfied by the security provided to its High Commission in London and Consulate in Birmingham even as it was making efforts to extradite Sikh separatists spotted at some of the pro-farmer protests in the UK, Canada and the US.
Asked about the presence of Paramjit Singh Pamma at one such demonstration before an Indian mission, the MEA said the National Investigation Agency has filed a charge sheet against 16 foreign-based Khalistani supporters for the 2020 referendum by the banned “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ).
Besides Pamma, the chargesheeted accused include US residents Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, Avtar Singh Pannun, Harpreet Singh and several the UK and Canadian residents, including Kulwant Singh Mothad.
The MEA said the SFJ was actually a secessionist outfit posing as a human rights advocacy group.
