Republic Media Network has accessed footage which shows that Indian diplomat's camera being snatched by a Pakistan security official. The incident happened outside the Serena hotel where the Pakistan security officials tried to harass guests attending the Indian High Commission's Iftar Party. 

Pakistan's security officials on Saturday harassed guests who had come to attend the Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission on Saturday. 

Following the incident, Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan apologised to the guests and said that Pakistan had violated basic norms of diplomatic conduct.

"We apologise to all our guests who were aggressively turned away from our Iftar yesterday. Such intimidatory tactics are deeply disappointing. They not only violate basic norms of diplomatic conduct and civilized behaviour, they are counter-productive for our bilateral relations," he said.

On Sunday, India lodged a strong protest against Pakistan over its officials harassing and chasing away guests who were attending the Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission.

It has protested against the intimidation of its guests by the Pakistan officials.

In its protest, India has called the incident a campaign by Pakistan agencies to actively dissuade the guests to attend the function. India said that the three-hundred-plus guests faced unprecedented harassment by the security agencies and were turned away from attending the event.
