Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, today claimed that he received three threat calls from unknown numbers asking him to leave the country, hours after Indian Army said that it conducted surgical strikes at terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
News agency ANI, citing Pakistan High Commission sources, reported that Basit received at least three calls threatening him to leave the country immediately.
It also said that the details of calls have been shared with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).
Pakistan’s Geo News reported that the caller asked Basit that ‘it is better for you to return to your country’.
This comes amid escalating tensions between the two neighbours over the Indian Army carrying out surgical strikes in PoK, killed more than 30 terrorists.
Earlier this week, the MEA had summoned Basit and handed over a dossier containing proof of Pakistan’s hand in the Uri terror attack that left 18 jawans dead.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry has also summoned Indian envoy Gautam Bambawale. The context of the summons are not known yet.
Pakistan has vehemently denied India’s claims of having carried out surgical strikes across the LoC, maintaining since Army’s declaration that it was a cross-border firing which saw two Pakistani soldiers being killed.
