During his London Trip, PM Narendra Modi was greeted by a mob of protestors protesting against the recent surge in sexual violence and the Kathua rape case in Jammu and Kashmir.

Modi's comments on Wednesday followed remarks last week, which came after a week of silence on the issue and promised justice regardless of whoever the guilty were.

The prime minister, during the interaction, asked what prevented his predecessors from going to Israel, referring to previous governments' policy of avoiding highest-level visit to the Jewish state. But will we say "these many (rapes) happened during your government's rule and these many in mine"? "First [we will] tell Pakistan [about the surgical strikes], we don't want to hide [the information]", the prime minister said.

"The visit of Prime Minister Modi will see the launch of a package of technical assistance to help India climb further up the rankings for ease of doing business, benefitting United Kingdom companies and the Indian economy alike".

IMA Secretary-General Dr R N Tandon also said the doctors in the country are being "suppressed and exploited" by every means possible.

Modi is then scheduled for a private audience with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace before the "Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath" diaspora event, to be telecast live from the iconic Central Hall Westminster in London today.

"We believe in peace". We will give back strong answers and in the language they understand. "Terrorism will never be accepted", he asserted.

They also inked the deal on cooperation in the field of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries Sectors seeking to strengthen collaboration in livestock health and husbandry, breeding, dairying and fisheries, sanitary issues, exchange of scientific personnel, promotion of agro-forestry for planting fodder tree species, bulk transportation of fodder to deficit areas. "How can we tolerate this exploitation of our daughters?", he said, as quoted by The Economic Times.

"The Indian government are doing nothing, and you feel sorry for the families because of the total injustice of it all", said Navindra Singh, an Indian-born lawyer who lives in Britain.

Holding placards reading "Modi go home" and "we stand against Modi's agenda of hate and greed", they also gathered outside Downing Street.

India also committed itself to doubling its contribution to Commonwealth offices of small states in NY and Geneva, and to the Commonwealth Secretariat in London to enhance its ability to deliver tailor-made assistance to smaller countries.
