Imran Khan’s government in Pakistan is continuing harassment of Indian diplomats, ignoring repeated protests from Indian government. Violating all international norms towards treatment being extend to diplomats, Pakistan authorities seems to be adamant in this regard.
After being questioned on the road for 30 minutes in Peshawar by Pakistani security agencies, another incident of harassment of Indian diplomats in Pakistan has come to fore. This time electricity was cut for four hours at the residence of the second secretary in Islamabad on the Christmas day, December 25, causing inconvenience to the family members of the diplomat along with kids.
This clearly indicates that the harassment till now accorded to Indian diplomats, is now being extended to their family members too. The problem is compounded by the fact that it is peak winter in the Pakistani capital which is nestled in the foothills of Himalayas.
The power was cut for four hours from 7 am to 10.45 am and the matter was raised with Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA). WAPDA is the government-owned public utility which maintains power and water in Pakistan. The diplomat also made a telephonic complaint with WAPDA. It may be noted that there was no electrical fault at the residence and power supply was cut off only at his residence.
