The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has alleged that the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi has become an “ISI den” and that it is breaking all rules and laws.
The party further said that the union government has taken cognisance of the matter and will take appropriate action in this case.
"The reality is that the high commission here has become an ISI den. It is breaking all rules and laws...Its work is no longer about diplomatic relationship. It has become a centre of smuggling information from here to there (Pakistan)," BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
Shrikant Sharma was responding to reports that more Pakistani High Commission officials may be involved in the alleged spy ring recently busted by Delhi Police.
"The Indian government has taken cognizance of it and will take appropriate action," he said.
At a press conference, he also termed as unfortunate the attack on Hindus and their temples in Bangladesh and said the Indian government will take up the matter with the neighbouring country.
"Our government will speak to the government (of Bangladesh) in this regard. The Hindus there and their religious places should not be targeted due to some incident there. They should be given security," he added.
