Pakistan Summons Indian Envoy Over Denial Of Visa To Its Diplomats

Pakistan today summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner to convey its unhappiness over Indian government’s refusal to grant permission to five of its Delhi-based diplomats to travel to Kolkata to watch a World Cup T20 cricket match involving Pakistan.

India, on Tuesday, did not give travel permission to five out of seven Pakistani diplomats because they were seen as having links with “ISI and defence” organisations.

Foreign Office summoned Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh and told him that clearance should be given to other diplomats also as it was a “big sporting event” and these diplomats were travelling to Kolkata to encourage the Pakistan cricket team, according to sources.

Pakistan is playing Bangladesh in a Super 10 Group 2 encounter at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Wednesday.
