“The reality is that the high commission here has become an ISI den. It is breaking all rules and laws…Its work is no longer about diplomatic relationship. It has become a centre of smuggling information from here to there (Pakistan),” party National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said.

He was responding to reports that more Pakistani High Commission officials may be involved in the alleged spy ring recently busted by Delhi Police.

“The Indian government has taken cognisance of it and will take appropriate action,” he said.

At a press conference, he also termed as unfortunate the attack on Hindus and their temples in Bangladesh and said the Indian government will take up the matter with the neighbouring country.

“Our government will speak to the government (of Bangladesh) in this regard. The Hindus there and their religious places should not be targeted due to some incident there. They should be given security,” he said.
