‘Journalist Poonam Joshi covering for ANI the #IndianIndependenceDay celebrations outside Indian High Commission in London, where Pro-Pak & Pro-Khalistan protests were also underway, snatches 2 torn parts of tri-colour from Khalistan supporters who had seized it from Indians,’ news agency ANI wrote on Twitter.

“As I was standing outside the police cordon, I instinctively ran over to the Pakistani side, grabbed the first part of the flag off the floor and the second part from the other man’s hands,” Poonam was quoted as saying by ANI.

Poonam also said that she had covered many protests in her career, but never witnessed such an ugly and disrespectful behaviour by protesters. 

Four people were later arrested for affray, obstruction of police and possession of an offensive weapon, police said.
