13 members of Indian diplomatic staff leave Pakistan


Staff Reporter


As tensions following India’s illegal and unilateral Kashmir move escalate, at least 13 Indian diplomatic staff members left Pakistan on Saturday and crossed the international border at Wagah into India, diplomatic sources said.
The staff left the country along with their families.
Pakistan downgraded its diplomatic ties and suspended bilateral trade with India in response to New Delhi’s illegal annexation of disputed Jammu and Kashmir region. The decision was part of a series of measures announced by the government after civil-military leadership discussed the situation, arising out of Indian decision to abrogate Article 370 of its constitution, which gave the Himalayan region special status.
