On Sunday (May 31, 2020) the Indian authorities nabbed two Pakistani High Commission officials red-handed in Delhi's Karol Bagh while attempting to manufacture a confidential paper. With this act of treason, India has declared them a persona non grata, and they will be sent back on June 1.
They are alleged to have assumed fake Indian identities. The authorities recovered from them a fake Aadhaar card named Nazir Gotam, a resident of the Geeta Colony. Also, two Apple iPhone and Rs 15,000 in cash have been recovered by the authorities.
Upon the basis of detailed information, surrounding the role of officials in spying, a trap was set for them in Karol Bagh as the officers approached the precise position where they were arrested.
"The police have arrested 2 Pakistani high-level workers for espionage-related operations. Two visa assistants, Abid Hussain and Tahir Khan serve as Visa Assistants and are ISI agents," said the Delhi Police.
The two men, 42-year-old Abdi Hussain Abid and 44-year-old Tahir Khan had arrived in a diplomatic car from Pakistan. Details reveal that the car was being sold by the Pakistan high commission.
The mission was jointly undertaken by Special Cell and Military Intelligence (MI) of the Delhi Police.
In a press statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said India lodged a strong protest in the matter and a demarche was issued for the Charge de Affaires of Pakistan.
Pakistan, meanwhile, rejected the allegations made against its staff members as unfounded and condemned the act of declaring them Persona Non-Grata and called it a 'negative pre-planned and orchestrated media campaign.'
It said that the High Commission in New Delhi had always operated within the context of international law and diplomatic norms.
Pakistan claimed that two members of the Pakistan High Commission were taken into custody by the Indian authorities on false and unsubstantiated charges. They were, however, made public on the intervention of the High Commission. Pakistan condemns the arrest and torture, as well as the threat and pressure of diplomatic officials to accept false charges.
Pakistan wanted the international community 's participation in this problem and took note of the Indian plans and played their position in maintaining South Asian peace and stability.
