2 Pakistan High Commission officials caught in spying, asked to leave India in 24 hours

New Delhi, May 31 (UNI) Two officials at Delhi's Pakistan High Commission were caught spying by Indian law enforcement authorities on Sunday and have been asked to leave the country within 24 hours.
The two officers identified as Abid Hussain and Tahir Hussain, who worked in the visa section of the high commission, were caught red handed while engaged in anti-India activity.
Further, it has been said that the two had assumed fake Indian identities and used it everywhere.
The government has declared both these officials persona non grata for indulging in activities incompatible with their status as members of a diplomatic mission and asked them to leave the country within twenty four hours, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a statement.
A demarche was also issued to Pakistan’s Charge de Affaires, in which a strong protest was lodged with regard to the activities of these officials against India’s national security.
Pakistan's Charge de Affaires was also asked to ensure that no member of its diplomatic mission should indulge in activities inimical to India or behave in a manner incompatible with their diplomatic status, it added.
In 2016, one Pakistan High Commission official Mehmood Akhtar was declared as persona non grata after he was caught receiving sensitive documents.
During interrogation, Akhtar had revealed that he belonged to Baloch Regiment of Pakistan Army and joined Pakistan's spy agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) on deputation.
He had been posted at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi since September 2013.
