Govt asks mission staff in Pakistan to send wards away for education

 The Centre on Monday asked its officials in the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to send their wards outside Pakistan for studies.

 
"It is a normal practice for all countries to review staffing and related policies for their diplomatic missions, including in view of prevailing circumstances at those stations," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said in reponse to a question. 
 
"With effect from this academic session, officials posted in the High Commission of India in Islamabad have been advised to make arrangements for education of their wards outside Pakistan, till further notice," he said.
