Shortly after Islamabad expelled an Indian diplomat, New Delhi retaliated declaring Syed Mohammed Rafiq Ahmed, counsellor (political) at Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi as persona non grata and asked him to leave the country.
India's decision was conveyed to Pakistan's Deputy High Commissioner Afra Siab when he was summoned to the External Affairs Ministry, official sources told PTI.
New Delhi also lodged protest with Islamabad over expulsion of its Counsellor (Visa) Deepak Kaul.
