According to a media report, three Indian High Commission officials out of the eight accused by Pakistan of being members of Indian intelligence agencies, left for India. Geo News, quoting sources, reported that three officials — First Secretary commercial Anurag Singh, Vijay Kumar Varma and Madhawan Nanda Kumar left for Dubai from Islamabad on a morning Emirates flight. The report added that 5 other Indian High Commission officials will leave for India via road through the Wagah border. Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said that a number of Indian diplomats and staffers were involved in “coordinating terrorist and subversive activities in Pakistan under the garb of diplomatic assignments”. He had named the eight Indian officials, accusing them of being members of Research and Analysis Wing and Intelligence Bureau. This tit-for tat move came after India declared Pakistan High Commission staffer Mehmood Akhtar persona non grata for espionage activities.
