ISLAMABAD: Signalling a fresh slide in ties, Pakistan and India may temporarily recall their high commissioners and scale down the size of diplomatic staff in each other’s missions in the wake of the latest diplomatic spat over the spying episode, a media report said on Friday. The latest spat started last week after a staff member of Pakistan’s high commission in New Delhi was detained by police for questioning over espionage charges, the Express Tribune reported. The fresh slide in ties may also lead to a ‘scaling down’ of the strength of diplomatic staff by the two neighbours, the paper said. The tension intensified after tit-fit-tat naming of diplomatic staff for alleged spy work by both sides. Mahmood Akhtar, who was working as a visa officer at the Pakistani high commission, was later expelled from India.
