NEW DELHI: Pakistan High Commissioner in India Abdul Basit has reportedly received “threat calls” on Thursday, asking him to leave India.

Quoting Pakistan High Commission sources, Geo News said the threatening calls were from an unknown number and the caller asked Basit that “it is better for you to return to your country”.

This comes amid a heated debate between the two neighbours over the Indian Army carrying out surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) to neutralise terrorists waiting to infiltrate into the Indian territory.

India today announced that it conducted surgical strikes yesterday night and destroyed many terror bases across the LoC, while Pakistan rubbished the claim saying that there was only a cross-border firing that killed two of its soldiers.
