India has now decided to reduce the staff of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi by 50 per cent. The Central Government has also decided to reduce 50 per cent staff at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad. The decision will be implemented in seven days from now. This comes as a big blow to the already bitter relationship between the two countries. On June 24, India summoned Pakistan’s envoy to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and conveyed the decision. This development occurred after India, repeatedly, expressed concern about the activities of officials of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.

India says Pakistani officials have been engaged in acts of espionage and have maintained dealings with terrorist organisations. That is a massive charge against the Pakistan High Commission officials in India. It comes after India caught two officials red-handed and expelled them on May 31. Now, India says that Pakistan has also engaged in a sustained campaign to intimidate officials of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.
