Pakistan reciprocated by detaining Bangladeshi official in Pakistan for hours on Monday.A report has been published in The Nation News paper.
Bangladesh protested by summoning Pakistan’s high commissioner to lodge the protests on this incident.
“We have summoned the Pakistan high commissioner to lodge the protests on the missing incident,” said a senior official at the foreign ministry in Dhaka, who asked not to be identified in the absence of authorisation to speak to the media.
Last month, a Bangladeshi diplomat in Pakistan was expelled in what Dhaka officials called “an act of retaliation” after a Pakistani diplomat in Dhaka was expelled after being accused of spying.
