Lawyers in the United Kingdom are 'coaching' 'illegal' Indian migrants to pose as pro-Khalistanis to seek asylum in the country. Nearly 40 law firms, monitored by the UK authority, have come under the radar of carrying out such suspicious operations.
The incident has come to light after a journalist of the Daily Mail visited a string of law firms as an undercover agent and represented himself as an illegal Indian migrant, who has come to Britain on a small boat, looking for work.
The most number of suggestions from the firms was that the man describes himself as a farmer from Punjab who is a supporter of the Khalisatn movement.
According to the report, one lawyer, charging 5,500 pounds, suggested he say that he participated in the farmers' protest and later someone asked him to join the Khalistan separatist Amritpal Singh. Eventually, he must tell that following these incidents, his life has come under threats from Indian security.
Another lawyer, charging 10,000 pounds, suggested that he must represent himself as a pro-Khalistani even though he doesn't have to be, to win the case.
Taking to Twitter, UK PM Rishi Sunak said, "This is what we’re up against. The Labour Party, a subset of lawyers, criminal gangs - they're all on the same side, propping up a system of exploitation that profits from getting people to the UK illegally. I have a plan to stop it."
Labour have tried to block every vote to stop the boats. Their plan for immigration is an open door.— Rishi Sunak (@RishiSunak) July 25, 2023
But I know stopping the boats is a priority for the British people.

In subsequent tweets, he further wrote, "Labour have tried to block every vote to stop the boats. Their plan for immigration is an open door. But I know stopping the boats is a priority for the British people. And I'm leaving no stone unturned to get it done." He further explained the deal he secured with France on the largest ever small boats, which will see 40% more patrols on French beaches. He also mentioned that he negotiated a deal with Albania to make it easier to deport and deter illegal migrants and FNOs.
