Pakistan has accused India of harassing its diplomats and their families living and working at its High Commission in New Delhi, the Dawn has reported.

According to the daily, Pakistan has said that it will pull the families if the alleged intimidation did not stop.

“It is becoming difficult for the Pakistani diplomats posted in India to keep their families with them due to increase in harassment incidents,” a source told the daily, adding that the Indian employees of Pakistan’s High Commission in New Delhi were being stooped from coming to work.

The source said that children of Pakistan’s deputy high commissioner were recently stopped on their way to school and harassed. In another incident, a senior diplomat was harassed while moving around in the national capital.

Pakistan’s accusation comes just a day after India blasted it at United Nations for playing the victim card after providing safe haven to terrorists like 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden and 26/11 perpetrator Hafiz Saeed.

“It is extraordinary that the state which protected Osama Bin Laden and sheltered Mullah Omar should have the gumption to play the victim,” said India's Second Secretary Mini Devi Kumam while responding to Pakistan's accusations of human rights violations at the 37th session of UN Human Rights Council.
