The Pakistan High Commission has lodged a strong protest with the Ministry of External Affairs over the issue, its spokesman Manzoor Ali Memon said tonight.
He said Zargam Raza, First Secretary (Trade), was going home in Vasant Kunj from office in Chanakyapuri area when two persons on a motorcyle hurled abuses at them at around 6.30 pm. When they objected to this behaviour, Raza and his driver Haider were allegedly beaten up by some people there, Memon alleged.
He said the High Commission has written a strong letter to the MEA demanding an immediate and thorough inquiry into the incident.
The High Commission also asked the government to ensure safety and security of its staff as per the Vienna Convention and international diplomatic practices.
