The protestors carrying pro-Khalistan flags and placards raised slogans in support of Sikh militant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.
"We are undertaking a genocide remembrance parade in Amritsar to pay homage to the people who fought and to tell the government of India that we have not forgotten and forgiven the perpetrators of the attack," a protestor told ANI.
He informed that they had marched across the city and had performed prayer in the memories of those killed in the attack.
