ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Sohail Mahmood returned to New Delhi on Thursday after Indian authorities partially addressed Pakistan’s concerns about harassment of its diplomats.

Mr Mahmood crossed the border by road and then took a flight from Amritsar to Delhi. He would be hosting the high commission’s Pakistan Day reception on Friday (today).

The high commissioner was recalled last week as a mark of protest over multiple incidents of harassment of diplomats and their families in India.

A diplomatic source said the frequency of harassment incidents had declined significantly.

“The diplomats from the Foreign Service are no more being bullied, but diplomats from other branches of government are still being harassed,” the source said.
