India Pakistan relations to get further strained, after this diplomatic incident

In yet another incident that is bound to strain India Pakistan relations further, a case of alleged misbehaviour by a Pakistan high commission staffer with a woman has been reported.

The incident is said to have taken place at the popular Sarojini Nagar market.

This is bound to now set off yet another diplomatic row with India and Pakistan alleging harassment by local authorities in Islamabad and New Delhi.

While Pakistan accused India of violating the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations by detaining a Pakistan high commission official in New Delhi, government sources recalled the harassment being faced by Indian diplomats in Islamabad, including attempts to hack their email and social
media accounts.

The Pakistan official was detained by police for his involvement in an altercation with a woman who alleged that he had inappropriately touched her.

The official was later let off after he apologised in writing to the woman. The woman didn’t press charges against him after this.

The Pakistani official identified as Shaukat, is posted as an assistant of the naval advisor. Police sources said the incident happened on Saturday evening when a DU student alleged that he had touched her inappropriately in a crowded shop.
