London terror attack: 'India stands with the UK in the fight on terror', says PM Narendra Modi

Following what UK PM Theresa May called a "sick and depraved" terror attack in London yesterday, her Indian counterpart PM Narendra Modi said today that India "stands with (the) UK in the fight against terrorism."

In yesterday's terror attack that occurred very close to the British parliament, five people including the attacker were killed and as many as 40 people were wounded, many of them "catastrophically".
Deeply saddened by the terror attack in London. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
