A Joint Security Review (JSR) has been carried out following a complaint to External Affairs Ministry by Pakistan High Commission of receiving a letter threatening to harm Pakistani officials even as a probe into the matter was on.

Following the threat letter reportedly received by the High Commission here on May 6, the concerned security wing scheduled a JSR, in which representatives of the Pakistan mission also participated.

It is understood that the JSR assessed the security for the mission, reviewed measures to secure the premises and discussed means to counter perceived threats, including deployment and response mechanisms.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the investigation into the threat letter is in progress.

The issue of receiving threat letter was taken up by the Pakistan's deputy high commissioner to India with the MEA.

Apart from seeking a comprehensive probe into the issue including ascertaining identity of the sender of the letter, the High Commission has asked for additional security, maintaining it was India's responsibility to ensure the safety and security of Pakistani diplomats and other staff in the mission.
