The Indian envoy to Pakistan was summoned in Islamabad on Monday over a threatening call to the Sindh governor from India, as per reports.

South Asia & Saarc Director General Muhammad Faisal summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh to the Foreign Affairs ministry, saying that Sindh governor Ishratul Ibad Khan received a hoax call on Saturday

The hoax call threatened that the governor's official residence in Karachi would be detonated with explosives.

The bomb disposal unit was rushed to the governor's residence immediately after the call was made. However, no explosives were found on the premises.

"Details of the call were also shared with him (Singh) and it was requested that the Indian government may have the matter investigated and share results with Pakistan at the earliest," said foreign office spokesman Qazi M Khalilullah.

Indian officials have not responded to Pakistan on the matter yet.
