ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Tuesday has lodged a strong protest with Bangladesh over the incident of the burglary at its High Commission in Bangladesh capital.

A few days ago, unidentified burglars broke into the consular section of the Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka and had stolen some computers, according to Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal.

The FO, in a statement released by its spokesperson today, expressed "grave concern" over the incident, as the high commission building is located in a "highly secure diplomatic area" that is not easy to penetrate.

The spokesman said the matter was immediately reported to Bangladesh’s police and an FIR was lodged. Bangladesh Foreign office was also informed and strengthened security was requested.

The FO urged Dhaka to hold a "thorough investigation, share a detailed report with us and bring the culprits to justice".

“It is the responsibility of the Bangladesh government to provide full security to the Pakistan High Commission premises,” the spokesman added.
