A note verbale is prepared in the third person and unsigned, which makes it less formal in nature. India has also alleged harassment of their diplomats in Islamabad at the hands of intelligence agencies. "It is becoming hard for the Pakistani diplomats posted in India to keep their families with them due to increase in harassment incidents", said the newspaper quoting a source. India's residential complex in Islamabad was raided by Pakistan agencies, who expelled all Pakistani service providers and disconnected power and water supply. Despite Janjua's assurance, the power supply was not restored for over two weeks, sources said, adding that the Pakistan mission in India doesn't face such disruptions. Moreover, they said, there has been an undue delay by the Pakistan government in providing clearances for the complex. "We would like to continue the fine tradition of allowing diplomats to do their jobs", said the MEA.

Despite the protest by the Indian High Commissioner, the power supply wasn't restored for more than 2 weeks and his own vehicle was intercepted in the middle of the road preventing him from attending an event. They said that they would ensure a safe working environment for all its diplomats. "But unfortunately, this can not be said of Islamabad", said sources.

Members of the Pakistan High Commission have flagged the Indian foreign ministry officials and their families of getting harassed.

"It is becoming hard for the Pakistani diplomats posted in India to keep their families with them due to an increase in harassment incidents", the source said.According to the report, the children of Pakistan's Deputy High Commissioner were stopped and harassed on their way to school over the past three days, while a senior diplomat was harassed while moving in Delhi.
