Two Indian High Commission officials working at Islamabad in Pakistan went missing since 8 am on Monday morning. It is reported that both the Indian High Commission staffers were Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) drivers and were on-duty before they went missing. To get more information, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) registered an official complaint regarding the same to Pakistan government. Commenting on the missing report of the two officials, former Indian diplomat Sharat Sabarwal slammed Pakistan for not observing the code of conduct.

Claiming Pakistan to be a ‘rouge state’, Defence expert AK Singh criticised the country and said this is not the first time, such an incident has occurred.

The development comes days after India on May 31 expelled two Pakistani High Commission officials in Delhi as they were caught red-handed for spying against India.  The Indian authorities nabbed two Pakistani High Commission officials in Delhi while they were trying to procure a sensitive document. India had declared them as persona non grata and both were sent back to Islamabad on June 1. The two Pakistani officials worked in the visa section of the High Commission in New Delhi.
