India has asked Pakistan to cut down the strength of the High Commission in Delhi by 50 per cent and has decided to do the same for the Indian mission in Islamabad. While the Indian diplomatic mission in Islamabad has constantly faced disturbing instances, the situation has worsened in the last year. India expelled two Pakistan mission staffers on May 31, who were accused of spying and trying to obtain information on the movement of Indian troops. The significant move by India in the current situation with Pakistan came after two Indian diplomats in Islamabad were kidnapped and ill-treated. Pakistan claimed that the diplomats were detained under a hit-and-run case.
