NEW DELHI - India in response to Pakistani allegations of harassing its diplomats in New Delhi has countered that Pakistan was making the lives of Indian diplomats and their families in that country difficult.
Officials said that India , too, had apprised Pakistan of these problems, Hindustan Times has reported.
Two Indian officials, who asked not to be named, pointed to a series of incidents allegedly indicating harassment of Indian diplomats in Islamabad -- forcibly stopping high commission vehicles, hampering the work of a residential project, threatening a contractor who maintains the Indian chancery building.
The high commissioner’s car was recently stopped by Pakistan agencies in the middle of a busy road to prevent him from attending an event, they said.
They said this was in contrast with the facilities India provided the Pakistani high commission.
The Indian high commissioner in Islamabad met the foreign secretary of Pakistan and lodged protest against multiple acts of hooliganism against Indian properties and personnel, officials said.
