Pakistan lodges strong protest with India regarding safety and security of its High Commission and officers/officials

Special Secretary (Asia Pacific) Imtiaz Ahmad summoned the Acting Indian High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia today to lodge a strong protest against the anti-Pakistan demonstration on 18 February 2019, where protestors were allowed to reach and jolt the gate of the Pakistan House despite presence of Indian security officials. It was underscored that despite a strong protest to the Indian Government, acts of harassment targeting the Pakistan High Commission, Pakistan house, and the Officers/Officials of the High Commission and their families continued, including abusive calls to the Pakistan High Commission helpline.

The Special Secretary reiterated Pakistan’s demand to the Government of India for a comprehensive, immediate investigation of this serious breach of security, taking foolproof measures for safety and security of the Pakistan House, High Commission and its officers/officials and their families in New Delhi, and ensuring that such incidents do not recur.
