Consular staff meet Scottish activist held in India

A Scottish Sikh man being detained in India has met British consular staff, the Foreign Office has confirmed.

Jagtar Singh Johal, from Dumbarton, was taken from a street in the state of Punjab on 4 November.

He has not been charged with any crime and his lawyer claims his client has been tortured by police.

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said they have also met with Mr Johal’s family and confirmed that he now has access to a lawyer.

The development came after hundreds of British Sikhs demonstrated outside the Foreign Office demanding the UK government did more to help him.
