The Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi on Tuesday circulated a video showing a slow-moving auto blocking one of its diplomat's vehicles in the national Capital, The Indian Express reported.

The foreign office on Tuesday also summoned Indian deputy high commissioner and registered strong protest over the incidents.

The Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi has however written a note to the Ministry of External Affairs, alleging specific incidents of harassment of diplomats.

Although India hasn't responded to the official communication from the Pakistan high commission, government sources said that the incident and the charges are getting investigated.

According to sources, the Indian High Commissioner's vehicle was recently stopped by Pakistani agencies in the middle of a busy road to prevent him from attending a lunch hosted by the Bohra community in Karachi, where he had gone to attend a literature festival.

This deliberate bullying is not confined to a single isolated event, but continues unabated in a series of incidents, especially targeting the children of our officers and staff.

In a new low for ties, India-Pakistan relations are now caught in a vicious cycle of reprisals which was initiated because of, as Indian authorities say, a raid on a residential complex for Indian diplomats by ISI in Islamabad. "The Indian High Commission in Pakistan has been facing tremendous harassment for long, particularly in the previous year".

After the latest incidents, the Pakistani High Commission has once again taken up the matter with the Indian government.

On 7 and 8 March 2018, the children of the officers of the Mission were harassed while returning from school.

On March 9, Pakistan alleged that its naval adviser's vehicle was "aggressively chased", while its political counselor was "forcibly evicted from a cab" by unidentified men, who then threatened him. In a note verbale, the Pakistan high commission alleged the children were harassed and blocked by Indian authorities while they were on their way to the British School. "We have noticed a surge in the last one year", said an Indian foreign ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity. One official was quoted as saying, "Aggressive surveillance, violation of physical space and tailing of [Indian] officers in close and unsafe proximity is a perennial issue" inside Pakistan.

The incident happened when the diplomat was on his way to home after work.

In October 2016, Pakistan expelled Indian diplomat Surjeet Singh, saying he had violated the Vienna Convention and "established diplomatic norms".
