Abdul Basit, Pakistan's High Commissioner to India gets threat calls.IANS

Pakistan's top envoy in India, Abdul Basit, has received threatening calls following the Indian Army's disclosure that it conducted "surgical strikes" across the Line of Control (LoC).

Reports from Indian news agency ANI noted that the Pakistani High Commission in India has shared the details with the Ministry of External Affairs.

Further, the Pakistani side has cited the Vienna Convention, and asked the Indian government to provide security to the members and families of the Pakistani High Commission in India.

The Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations provides diplomatic immunity to ambassadors and their family. It is a treaty that protects and safeguards them from any harm or attacks in the host country.

Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar had on September 27 summoned Basit and provided him the proof of cross-border origins of the Uri attackers and its handlers.
