Indian authorities have arrested Inderpal Singh Gaba, a UK national of Afghan Sikh origin, for his alleged involvement in the attacks on the Indian High Commission in London last year. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) of India claims Gaba’s actions were part of a “larger conspiracy” targeting Indian diplomatic missions.

Gaba, a resident of Hounslow, was arrested by the NIA on Thursday. The agency accuses him of “unlawful activities” during the protests. Gaba’s lawyer, Satvinder Singh, maintains his client’s innocence. According to the defense, Gaba was simply present at the protest on March 22nd, 2023, and did not actively participate.

Gaba’s application claims he was merely celebrating his birthday with friends and “passing through the Indian Embassy area” when he encountered the demonstration. The application further states that a friend pressured him to join the protest, and “under compulsion, he stood with him.”

The application also mentions Gaba’s visit to Pakistan in December 2023. Here, Gaba reportedly made pilgrimages to Nankana Sahib, Panja Sahib, and Dera Sahib in Lahore. The defense clarifies that this visit was solely for a friend’s brother’s engagement ceremony.

The extent of Gaba’s involvement and the validity of his defense claims remain to be determined by the legal process. This case highlights the ongoing investigation into the attacks on the Indian High Commission in London.
