The sparring between India and Pakistan has extended to beyond the Line of Control (LoC) and the cricket field, as now the two neighbouring nations are exchanging allegations of mistreatment of their respective diplomats in each other's nations.
One of the alleged incidents on March 8 refers to "the morning between 0735-0800 hours, the vehicle (No. 89-CD-138) carrying the school going children of Deputy High Commissioner for Pakistan was followed by two cars from his residence to the British School, Chanakyapuri". Members of diplomatic staff are also abused in public and a number of accidents of vehicles have happened.
The Indian response came hours after Pakistani media reported that Pakistan's diplomats stationed here were facing harassment on a daily basis. "It is becoming hard for the Pakistani diplomats posted in India to keep their families with them due to increase in harassment incidents", said the newspaper quoting a source.
The report also said that the families of these officials made a decision to take their children out from the schools in Islamabad and leave the country.

Hours before, a Pakistani source told The Hindu that nearly all the top diplomats, barring the newly appointed High Commissioner of Pakistan, had faced aggressive surveillance from Indian agencies in the recent weeks.
Sources said that in the intervening night of February 15 and 16, the residential complex in Islamabad, which is still under construction and is opposite the Indian High Commission premises, was raided by Pakistan agencies which expelled all service providers, and later disconnected power and water supply.
In its formal communication to Islamabad, Pakistan high commission added that the Delhi Gymkhana and Golf Club, even if combined together, could not offer the facilities which Indian diplomats get at the Islamabad Club.
"Over the last few months, High Commission staff have been harassed and intimidated". In one case, an official's home was broken into and laptop stolen, sources said. "Obscene phone calls and messages are constantly received on phones", sources said, adding that the issue has become "out of the ordinary" in recent months. This has forced most families to return to India.
