India, Pakistan To Expel Embassy Staff Over Spying Allegations

Reuters: India, Pakistan to expel embassy staff in tit-for-tat spy rowNEW DELHI (Reuters) – India said on Tuesday it would expel half the staff in Pakistan’s embassy in New Delhi over alleged spying by officials there, prompting Islamabad to say it would respond in kind.

Relations between the nuclear-armed rivals are strained and tit-for-tat expulsions of diplomats, often on charges of espionage, are common.

Neither country has a permanent ambassador in place and in the last month each country has accused the other of illegally detaining and torturing its diplomats.

“They (Pakistan) have been engaged in acts of espionage and maintained dealings with terrorist organisations,” the Indian foreign ministry said in a statement.
