After vandalism in London, Khalistan supporters allegedly attacked Indian Consulate in San Francisco. Videos of supporters breaking the doors and barging into the office surfaced social media.

Graffiti has been painted with words #FREEAmritpal on the wall of the building.

Major Surendra Poonia in his tweet said that it was unacceptable and shocking that no action was taken by the government.

“Unacceptable Khalistani miscreants attacked the Indian consulate in San Francisco after Indian officials removed Khalistani flags from consulate building,” Poonia tweeted.

Commenting on the recent attacks on the Indian consulates in UK, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said that the British authorities should take measures to not let it happen.

"It's utterly shocking that this was allowed to happen. The real problem is not inside the High Commission but on the premises outside which is the responsibility of the local authorities, in this case the British Authorities, to protect. If the British Police are completely derelict in their duty & they allow this nonsense to happen, this is a major insult that we can't tolerate," sCongress MP Shashi Tharoor told ANI.

At least one man has been arrested after the Indian High Commission in London was vandalised allegedly by the Khalistani extremists on Sunday. The incident prompted India to register its strong protest with the British government.
