ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday summoned Acting Indian High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia today to lodge a strong protest against the anti-Pakistan demonstration on 18 February 2019, where protesters were allowed to reach and jolt the gate of the Pakistan House despite presence of Indian security officials.

The Indian Acting High Commissioner was summoned by Special Secretary (Asia Pacific) Imtiaz Ahmad.

It was underscored that despite a strong protest to the Indian Government, acts of harassment targeting the Pakistan High Commission, Pakistan house, and the Officers/Officials of the High Commission and their families continued, including abusive calls to the Pakistan High Commission helpline.

The Special Secretary reiterated Pakistan's demand to the Government of India for a comprehensive, immediate investigation of this serious breach of security, taking foolproof measures for safety and security of the Pakistan House, High Commission and its officers/officials and their families in New Delhi, and ensuring that such incidents do not recur.
