Pakistan calls back high commissioner from India

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday called back its high commissioner appointed in India for consultations in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.
Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted, “We have called back our high commissioner in India for consultations. He left New Delhi this morning,” Dr Faisal added.
The already sour relations between India and Pakistan have worsened over the past week as New Delhi piled blame on Islamabad for the Pulwama attack. Pakistan’s leadership has strongly refuted the allegations.
Some 44 Indian paramilitary personnel were killed last week when an explosives-packed van rammed a convoy transporting 2,500 security forces in Pulwama, in the deadliest attack in Indian-occupied Kashmir in 30 years.
New Delhi has blamed Pakistan for the attack, however, Islamabad maintained that the baseless Indian allegations and aggressive rhetoric were counterproductive and a threat to regional peace. Several Indian companies have too bowed down before the pressure and has pulled out of agreements with Pakistani counterparts.
IMG Reliance, which entered into agreement with Pakistan Cricket Board for production of PSL 2019, has refused to continue working with the board. Several Indian cricket associations have removed pictures of Pakistani players from their premises.
