Indian agencies officials stood out outside Pak HC in Delhi, stopped guests from joining National Day event: Indian media report

NEW DELHI - While Islamabad celebrate the National day today, the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi organised events in India, however, India did not send any representatives to the event as separatists from Jammu and Kashmir were also invited.

"The decision was taken after Pakistan High Commission decided to call Hurriyat leader to the reception. In February we were very clear, any attempt by Pakistan High Commission or Pakistani leadership to engage with Hurriyat leaders will not be taken lightly," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

Indian officials reportedly stood outside the Pakistan High Commission and were seen discouraging Indian guests from attending the event, NDTV has reported.

None of the separatists from Kashmir, however, attended the event this year as most of them either are in jail or under house arrest. The ones who are not jailed fear their arrest or another crackdown. Advertisement

Kashmiri human rights activist Mohammed Ahsan Untoo was briefly detained when he was going for the reception.

In the past too, New Delhi has insisted that Pakistan hold talks with India directly on differences over Kashmir and other issues, and has discouraged Islamabad from having direct contact with the Hurriyat leaders.
