The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday said Pakistan High Commission staffer Mehmood Akhtar has been asked to leave India within 48 hours. “Akhtar has been declared Persona Non-Grata and he along with his family has to leave India by this Saturday. He stated that he had joined Baloch regiment of the Pakistani Army in 1997. He came on deputation to the ISI in 2013. In fact, it was Mehmood Akhtar, who resorted to subterfuge by concealing his real identity. Mehmood Akhtar was posted in September 2013 to the Pakistan High Commission, where he is currently working,” MEA official spokesperson Vikas Swarup told the media here.
