The Prime Minister of India was greeted by protesters - and some supporters - as he came to London today for a meeting with Theresa May.

There were also several vans driving around Westminster in criticism of Mr Modi.

Protests were being held by Sikh groups, Dalit groups and Muslim groups in Britain, calling on the Indian government to offer justice for rape victims and political prisoners.

There was also a protest in support of Jagtar Singh Johal, the British Sikh man who has been held in jail for over 6 months in India without a charge or a trial. His MP Martin Docherty asked for more transparency and accountability.

The Sikh Press Association was covering some of the protests

There were protests organised by the South Asian Solidarity group too

There are some videos too

Sikhs even started handing out langar!

But not everyone was there to protest Modi.

Later today Narendra Modi is hosting an event at Westminster Hall to debate issues with his supporters.
