Prime Minister Narendra Modi today condemned the attacks in London, terming them as “shocking”. Two terror attacks at central London landmarks left at least six persons dead and 30 others injured. Three terror suspects were shot dead by the police.

Meanwhile External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has too expressed his grief and has assured to extend all possible assistance to affected and to their families. Swaraj has retweeted some important helpline number for those affected during the London Bridge attack. Any Indian who wants to get in touch can dial 02076323035. She also informed that the emergency number of Metropolitan Police is 999. “All Indians in London are advised to also  follow @metpoliceuk to check updated and authoritative facts on the incidents,” Swaraj retweeted India in The UK’s tweet.

Even the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minster Akhilesh Yadav has strongly condemned the attacks. Yadav took to Twitter and said, “The London attacks are disturbing. We condemn them. Our prayers are with the families of the victims and those injured.”

As of now 6 people have been reported dead and more than 20 are injured. Within 8 minutes of the incident, the Police have confirmed that 3 male assailants were killed.

It was the third terror attack to strike the UK this year, after a man drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March and the bomb attack on an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester two weeks ago. On 22 May, 22 people were killed and 116 injured in a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena.
