2 Indian High Commission staffers in Pakistan have gone missing since past couple of hours today, confirms reports. As per the reports, the Indian government has taken charge of the matter and is now in talks with the concerned authorities in Pakistan.

The former Indian Diplomat, Sharat Sabarwal, commenting on the report slammed Pakistan for being unable to observe the code of conduct.
A K Singh, the defence expert also criticised Pakistan saying that this is not the first time incident like this has occurred. He went on and said that Pakistan is a “rogue state”.
This incident took place less than 2 weeks after India expelled 2 Pakistani High Commission official in Delhi after charging them with espionage.
The two Pakistani High Commission officials who were expelled were working with the visa department in Delhi of the High Commission.
