After being questioned on the road for 30 minutes in Peshawar by Pakistani security agencies, another incident of harassment of Indian diplomats in Pakistan has come to fore. This time electricity was cut for four hours at the residence of the second secretary in Islamabad on 25th December causing inconvenience to the family members of the diplomat along with kids.
This the first time that family members of Indian diplomats have been impacted by the ongoing harassment of Indian diplomats. The problem is compounded by the fact that it is peak winter in the Pakistani capital which is nestled in the foothills of Himalayas.
The power was cut for four hours from 7 am to 10.45 am and the matter was raised with Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA). WAPDA is the government-owned public utility which maintains power and water in Pakistan. The diplomat also made a telephonic complaint with WAPDA. It may be noted that there was no electrical fault at the residence and power supply was cut off only at his residence.
