Hundreds of Sikh activists from North America staged a protest rally in front of the UN Headquarters in New York on the eve of India's Independence Day on Tuesday.

They were carrying Khalistan flag demanding independence for the Indian Punjab.

The demonstrators were chanting anti-India slogans and carrying placards inscribed with slogans like Free Punjab-End Indian Occupation.

Speakers at the rally urged the United Nations to support them to call Punjab Independence Referendum to secede from India to create a separate Sikh homeland, Khalistan.
