ISLAMABAD: The two staffers of the Indian High Commission, who were arrested last week for their involvement in a hit-and-run incident in the capital, left for India through the Wagah border crossing on Monday.
The two employees – Dwimu Brahma, security official, and Paul Selvadhas, a driver – were caught by bystanders on June 15 after their car hit a pedestrian. According to eye-witnesses, the car was being driven irresponsibly and had got out of control due to speeding. The man was critically injured and shifted to a nearby hospital.
The staffers were handed over to Islamabad Police who released them the same night. Multiple reports suggest that the two were released after the Foreign Office intervened in the matter.
New Delhi had summoned Pakistan’s high commissioner to protest the arrests.
According to reports, while on their return, the employees were accompanied by the second secretary and Air Adviser Group Captain Manu Midha of the high commission who have been summoned by New Delhi for consultations on the recent tensions between the two arch-rivals.
