NEW DELHI: India on Wednesday asked the UK to take punitive action against those involved in vandalism at the Indian High Commission in London for the second time in less than a month.

Thousands of people led by British-Pakistani groups held a protest outside the Indian High Commission on Tuesday against withdrawal of special status to J&K. The Indian Mission said the “violent protest” caused damage to the premises. A violent protest had taken place outside the mission on August 15 also.
