Pakistan summons Indian envoy over New Delhi embassy protest

imgPakistan summoned a senior Indian diplomat and asked him to ensure security of its diplomatic mission in New Delhi following a protest demonstration outside the Pakistani High Commission.

Indian media has reported that a group of youth belonging to the Indian ruling Congress party gathered outside the Pakistan High Commission Wednesday to protest the alleged killings of five Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir.

Nearly 200 members climbed police barricades and shouted anti- Pakistan slogans, Indian media quoted the Delhi police as saying.

The Pakistani Foreign Ministry expressed concerns at the demonstration in front of its diplomatic mission and called for security.

“Some demonstrators gathered in front of our High Commission and Pakistan House (residence of the ambassador) in New Delhi today. The protesters raised slogans against Pakistan,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

“We summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner to the Foreign Office to stress that protection of Pakistan High Commission and Pakistan House is the responsibility of the Indian government,” Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said in a statement.

He called for strengthening security of Pakistan’s representation in New Delhi.
