India confirmed on Saturday that it had lodged a strong protest with Pakistan after it was learnt that two of its diplomats were harassed during a trip to a gurdwara near Lahore on April 17.
“A strong protest was made to the Pakistan Foreign Office by our High Commission via Note Verbale on 25 April,” said a person about the Indian response to the reports of harassment.
It is learnt that intelligence officials of Pakistan misbehaved with the two Indian diplomats in Gurdwara Sacha Sauda Sahib in Farooqabad near Lahore on April 17. The intelligence operatives confined the two officers to a room when they were at the shrine to facilitate consular work for visiting Indian pilgrims.
A report carried by The Wire suggested that the two Indian officials were followed by Pakistani intelligence operatives.
