New Delhi — The Government is awaiting a detailed report from its high commission in London on the broadcast of the so-called Khalsa Voice from an unknown commercial radio station in western Europe.

Replying to question, an External Affairs Ministry spokesman said on Thursday that India’s reaction would be known only after details were available here. ‘‘We are awaiting detailed reports,” he said.


According to reports from London, the Indian High Commission was said to have drawn the British Government’s attention, recently to Dr. Jagjit Singh Chauhan’s plans to organize the broadcasts and asked for appropriate action in the matter.

Despite last minute queries by the British Home Office separatist Sikhs had gone ahead with the inaugural broadcasts of the so-called “Khalsa Voice” from an unknown commercial radio station in Western Europe on Tuesday night. The 15minute programme costing one thousand pounds consisted of recitations from the Guru Granth Saheb, a discussion on a current topic and a message from Dr. Jagjit Singh Chauhan.
