Pakistan Cuts Internet, Electricity & Gas Supplies Of Indian Diplomats
New Delhi: Indian diplomats have complained of harassment in Pakistan. Reports of ill-treatment of Indian officials by the Pakistani government have surfaced up, with many not being given gas connections, having their internet and electricity connection suspended randomly. The Ministry of External Affairs has reportedly taken up the matter with their Pakistani counterpart.
Reports also claimed that guests visiting Indian diplomats have faced difficulties with Pakistan authorities subjecting them to intense security. Amid the crackdown, an Indian official reported that an intruder tried to enter their Islamabad house on December 10.
Diplomatic tensions between India and Pakistan are in rough seas for quite some time now. Last month, India lodged a protest against Islamabad for humiliating and not letting Indian diplomats enter the Gurdwara Nankana Sahib despite permission.
Officials from India were not allowed to meet Indian Sikh pilgrims at these gurdwaras. Sources claimed that Indian officials were not only barred, but also humiliated by Pakistani security officials. They were also spoken to in a very bad and harsh language. Notably, Indian Officials in Pakistan have previously claimed mistreatment which included tailing the cars of high commission officials, cutting off water and electricity supplies and ringing the doorbells of senior diplomatic staff at 3am and then disappearing.
