Hundreds of Sikhs held a demonstration outside the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in London on Thursday in support of Mr Johal.

The Sikh Federation (UK) wrote to over 100 MPs within 24 hours through constituents to help secure the release of the young man from Scotland who recently got married.

"We take all allegations or concerns of torture and mistreatment very seriously and will follow up with action as appropriate".

A spokesperson for the Foreign Office has said: "When considering how to act, we will avoid any action that might put the individual in question or any other person that may be affected at risk".
