Nearly a dozen activists of a Tamil outfit on Friday barged into and vandalised the Sri Lankan High Commission here.

No one has been arrested so far. Security there has been strengthened there.

Around 3 p.m. nearly 50 people gathered outside the High Commission, located in the high-security Chanakyapuri, and raised slogans. Later some of them stormed into the premises, and broke nearly two dozen flowerpots. Then they left in their vehicles.

The police said the protesters owed allegiance to the Tamil Nadu-based Puthiya Tamizhagam.

“It all happened in less than two minutes. Even before the policemen deployed at the High Commission could swing into action, they had fled. No one was injured. We are making efforts to seek video footage from news channels which covered the incident,” said Additional Commissioner (New Delhi) Shankar Dash.

In the forenoon, these people held a peaceful demonstration at Jantar Mantar protesting against alleged atrocities on Tamils staying in refugee camps in Sri Lanka.
