Indian High Commission staff in Pakistan are being subjected to "intrusive surveillance" and "tailing" by intelligence personnel of that country, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Wednesday. "The matter has been taken up strongly with the Government of Pakistan at various levels," she told the Lok Sabha during Question Hour. "Members of the High Commission of India have been subjected to intrusive surveillance, including tailing by the intelligence and security personnel of the Pakistan government," the Minister said.

Replying to a question on "ill treatment of Indian diplomats", she referred to several incidents in Pakistan and other countries in the past few years and said after the issues were raised with the respective governments, such actions have not been repeated in these countries "except Pakistan".
