NEW DELHI: India says identities of eight diplomats in Pakistan exposed.

India said on Wednesday that the identities of eight of its diplomats in Pakistan had been revealed in the local media, amid continuing tensions between the nuclear-armed South Asian neighbors.

Vikas Swarup, spokesman of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, declined to comment when asked whether the eight diplomats stationed in Islamabad would be withdrawn.

He also said six Pakistani diplomats had left the Indian capital on Wednesday, but that they were not expelled.

India ordered one employee of the Pakistani High Commission out of the country last week, triggering a tit-for-tat expulsion of one of its own envoys by Islamabad.
