Indian diplomat who called Pakistan ‘Terroristan’, robbed of phone in Delhi


NEW DELHI: Bike-borne men snatched the mobile of Eenam Gambhir, the first Secretary in the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, reports NDTV.

The incident occurred on Saturday when Gambhir had gone for a walk in Rohini with her mother, they added. The accused snatched the phone from her on the pretext of asking for directions, the police said. Since it was evening, she could not note down the vehicle’s registration number, they said.

In her complaint, the diplomat said that as she started pointing towards the temple while holding her phone, they snatched the phone and fled.

Gambhir stated that the iPhone had a US-registered SIM card and some important files related to her work, they said.

In September this year when Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi brought up the Kashmir issue at the UN General Assembly, Gambhir had called Pakistan a “terroristan”.

Ukrainian Ambassador Igor Polikha’s mobile phone was snatched in September while he was taking pictures of the Red Fort, following which one person was arrested.
