India on Tuesday summoned a senior official from the Pakistan High Commission and protested strongly against the abduction of a Hindu girl from her marriage ceremony in connivance with the local police in Sindh province.

Official sources said India summoned a senior official from the Pakistan High Commission and made a strong demarche against the abduction of the girl on January 25, with the help of local police in Hala city of Sindh province.

The government also made a demarche against the desecration of Mata Rani Bhatiyani temple in Tharparkar Sindh province on January 26, sources said.

India asked the Pakistani government to investigate the two cases of persecution of the Hindu minority community members. Sources said Islamabad was also asked to take urgent action for protecting and promoting the security, safety and welfare of its citizens including the minority Hindu community.

While describing the incidents as "despicable" and "heinous", the government has asked Pakistan to take immediate measures to expeditiously bring the perpetrators to justice.
