Basit barred from entering a diplomatic meet in India

New Delhi—Pakistani High Commissioner in India Abdul Basit was not allowed to enter a diplomatic gathering in Nagpur, Indian media reported on Wednesday. The diplomatic gathering was arranged by United Nations and Pakistani High Commissioner was invited to attend the meeting.

Officials at Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi say that this is fourth time the invitation has been canceled. It is also said that this is against the diplomatic norms.—KMS
