An eyewitness captures video showing the moment police brutality started on the Sikh protest in London.
ALDWYCH, LONDON (22/10/2015)- I happened to be walking to my campus past the Indian High Commission when a peaceful Sikh protest was met with violence by the police, mounted and armed with riot gear.
Protesters were met with this response after blocking the carriageway on Aldwych. They were trying to raise awareness and express their opposition to alleged Indian Government inaction against, and even sponsorship of, murders and other rights abuses against Sikhs in Punjab. A woman was allegedly attacked by police officers according to bystanders.
One police officer was admitted to hospital according to news reports, who I believe is the officer videoed with blood on his face.
