On Thursday, Indian charge d’affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia was tailed by ISI staff in an apparent bid to intimidate him. In a video made by Indian officials, a biker could be seen following Ahluwalia’s car. Several intelligence operatives, in cars and bikes, had also been stationed outside Ahluwalia’s home in what India saw as an attempt to intimidate. This followed other attempts to disrupt the functioning of the Indian high commission since May 31, the day Indian authorities detained two Pakistan officials on espionage charges.

India registered a strong protest with Pakistan later in the evening over aggressive tailing and intrusive surveillance, and has asked Pakistani authorities to investigate these incidents urgently and instruct the relevant agencies to ensure that similar incidents do not recur

The government sees Pakistan’s action as violating the 1992 code of conduct for diplomats meant to ring fence diplomats from frequent strife in bilateral ties. Islamabad had earlier summoned Ahluwalia to “condemn” India’s decision to expel Pakistan officials saying it violated the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. Pakistan had in 2016 too expelled an Indian official after one of its officials here was held for espionage and declared persona non grata.

India had earlier too said that Pakistan was preparing ground for retaliatory action by falsely claiming that Indian agencies had tortured the Pakistan officials who were declared persona non grata by the MEA. According to India, the 2 officials were caught red handed while indulging in espionage activities but they were never subjected to any torture.
