The Indian High Commission in London was destroyed on Tuesday after a protest over Kashmir outside the building turned violent

The Indian High Commission in London was destroyed on Tuesday after a protest over Kashmir outside the building turned violent.

This is the second time violent protests have taken place over Kashmir outside the Indian High Commission in London. Earlier, the protests had broken on the Independence Day on August 15.

On Tuesday, protesters smashed windows of the Indian High Commission and even broke a windowpane of the building as they carried flags of the Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and raised "freedom" slogans.

Confirming the violent protest, the Indian High Commission tweeted, "Another violent protest outside the Indian High Commission in London today, 3 September 2019. Damage caused to the premises." The Indian High Commission also shared a photo of the damaged window pane on Twitter.

Responding to the tweet by India in the UK, London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned the violent protests, saying it was "unacceptable". "I utterly condemn this unacceptable behavior and have raised this incident with @metpoliceuk to take action," London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted.

Tuesday's incident marked the second time after India raised concerns over protests outside the Indian High Commission on August 15.

The Independence Day celebrations by the Indian diaspora in London were disrupted by Pakistan-backed protestors and anti-Khalistani elements, who hurled stones and eggs on the embassy building and Indians gathered outside.

Meanwhile, London police arrested four people in connection with the incident. A foot-long dagger was confiscated from one of the protesters, the police said. The protests were organized against the Indian government's move to revoke Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
