Pak rejects India's remarks on abduction of Afghan ambassador's daughter
India has no locus standi, whatsoever, on the matter, the Foreign Office said in a statement.MEA Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi at a media briefing in New Delhi described the incident as shocking, while pointing out that it was a matter involving Afghanistan and Pakistan.However, since the Pakistan interior minister has dragged India into it, I would only like to say that even by their standards, Pakistans denial of the victims account is stooping to a new low, he said.The FO said that India was in no position to pontificate on standards for other countries.
India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday described the abduction of the Afghan ambassador's daughter in Islamabad last week as a ''very shocking'' incident and said Pakistan's denial of the victim's account is ''stooping to a new low''.
''However, since the Pakistan interior minister has dragged India into it, I would only like to say that even by their standards, Pakistan's denial of the victim's account is stooping to a new low,'' he said.
Speaking about the security of the Indian High Commission and Indian personnel in Pakistan, Bagchi said, ''I would not like to get into specific security-related measures.'' Pakistan's Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid reiterated the police's claim on Tuesday that Alikhil was not abducted even as he urged her to come forward and join the probe.
