This group of separatists who came to the office of Consulate General to protest turned very violent and started using abusive language at the Indians for no reason and started snatching the national flags and placards.
This group of people who claim to be Khalistan supporters were surprisingly distributing pamphlets about recent Indian governments repealing of Article 370 with content similar to the rhetoric of Pakistan.
One of the separatists rushed towards the group of Indians who were there to celebrate Independence Day, snatched the national flag and started stepping on it as a mark of desecration to offend the Indians.
