Bangladesh cuts Pakistani diplomat

A Pakistani High Commission official, Mazhar Khan, based in Dhaka was declared persona non grata by the Bangladeshi government and was asked to leave the country Feb. 5.

The diplomatic official was charged by Bangladesh’s foreign ministry with running an illegal Indian currency business in Dhaka and having alleged links with militants.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasneem Aslam also confirmed the incident and said the Khan had reached Islamabad.

He called the incident “unfortunate” and said  the allegations against him are baseless.
