Latest India, Pakistan spat: India alleges mistreatment of envoys

Latest India, Pakistan spat: India alleges mistreatment of envoys

The relations have stooped to such lows that the two nations - India and Pakistan, have even threatened to pull out their diplomats from Islamabad and New Delhi, respectively.

The Indian High Commission in Pakistan has been made a "non-family" posting. It further added that harassment of families would not be tolerated at all.

"More troublingly, over the last few months, several High Commission staff have been severely harassed and intimidated". The reports further claim that Indian security personnel roughed up the driver of the auto with the diplomat's child still inside the vehicle.

A note verbale is prepared in the third person and unsigned, which makes it less formal in nature. "Most families have returned to India and children have been withdrawn from schools", he said."This is nothing new", a senior diplomat told The New Indian Express.

According to sources, the hostility towards the Pakistan diplomats was triggered by an ISI raid on a residential complex under construction for Indian diplomats in Islamabad. The Pakistani agency reportedly disconnected power and water supply. Moreover, they said, there has been an undue delay by the Pakistan government in providing clearances for the complex. "We would like to continue the fine tradition of allowing diplomats to do their jobs", pointed out one of persons quoted above.

Pakistani media reports said that Islamabad had warned that it might withdraw its staffers from the High Commission following intense surveillance by Indian agencies. These will no doubt be investigated. It is learnt that Pakistan put Indian high commissioner Ajay Bisaria and other Indian diplomats' application seeking membership of the Islamabad Club on hold to seek reciprocity for its diplomats in the Delhi Golf Club and Delhi Gymkhana. "In one case, an official's home was broken into, and a laptop stolen", sources said.

An Indian source describing the condition that Indian diplomats in Pakistan are facing, said, "Aggressive surveillance, violation of physical space and tailing of officers in close and unsafe proximity is a perennial issue".

"Agency personnel keep shooting videos of officers, thrusting phones into their faces". They further allege that the diplomats stationed in Islamabad have been receiving obscene phone calls and messages. The matter was resolved after it was raised with Pakistan foreign ministry, said sources.

He said that such incidents are unbearable and unforgivable. They said that all decisions about missions are taken on the basis of reciprocity.
