Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner to India raised the matter with the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).

“The letters, which were picked up in the past few days, contained threats to harm Pakistani officials as well as attempts on the delegations”, an official said on the condition of anonymity

Pakistan’s Foreign Office has demanded of Indian agencies to thoroughly investigate the letters to find out who posted them to Pakistan High Commission.

Islamabad also told India that it was incumbent on New Delhi to provide foolproof security to the Pakistan High Commission, its organizations, diplomats, and other material.

Meanwhile, Indian media quoted an official as stating that one threat letter had been experienced from the Pakistan High Commission and that security authorities had been alerted about the subject.

“We offer maximum possible protection to all missions and the same is the case with Pakistan,” the official told Indian media.

Nonetheless, there was no confirmation about who the letters came from.
