NEW DELHI, Mar. 23: Following what UK PM Theresa May called a "sick and depraved" terror attack in London yesterday, her Indian counterpart PM Narendra Modi said today that India "stands with (the) UK in the fight against terrorism."
In yesterday's terror attack that occurred very close to the British parliament, five people including the attacker were killed and as many as 40 people were wounded, many of them "catastrophically".
PM Modi said his thoughts are with the families of the killed and the wounded.
As of this morning, no Indians were among the killed or the wounded, said external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.
Islamic extremism was suspected in the attack, Metropolitan Police counterterrorism chief Mark Rowley said. He added that authorities believe they know the assailant's identity but they would not reveal it while the investigation was ongoing.
The threat level for international terrorism in the U.K. was already listed at severe, meaning an attack was "highly likely."
Speaking outside 10 Downing St. after chairing a meeting of government's emergency committee, COBRA, PM May said that level would not change. She said attempts to defeat British values of democracy and freedom through terrorism would fail.
"Tomorrow morning, Parliament will meet as normal," she said.(TOI)
