Terming the arrest of an Indian diplomat posted in IslamabadĀ a "serious" issue, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Wednesday said the government would do whatever was needed after finding out her "motive and modus operandi".

"Investigations are going on and we will have to wait till the investigation are complete and then find out what was the motive and what was the modus operandi," Krishna told reporters.

He said the fact that she was called and was in police custody shows the "seriousness".

"Let's first get through with the investigation that has been initiated.... MHA is doing the investigation. Once we get all the report, what needs to be done will be done by the government of India," he said.

Asked if the incident has brought the high commission under the scanner, the minister said, "Let's not be judgmental and jump to any conclusion."
