2 Indian high commission staff were detailed and later released in Islamabad. Reports say they were involved in an alleged car accident.
The two staffers went missing at 8.30 am and since then they were untraceable. India has taken up the matter with its Pakistani counterparts.
Sources in Islamabad said “two Indian diplomats have been arrested by police authorities” after they were “involved in a road accident”.
Both are officials of India’s Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), assigned as security to the High Commissioner and other diplomats. The officials, as per police sources, “were over speeding when the accident occurred.” However, there was no official communication from Pakistan.
At least one person has been injured in the accident, sources said, adding that as the two Indian staffers tried to flee, the locals stopped them. Later the police arrived and arrested both of them.
