Pakistan dismisses charges against HC staffer in Bangladesh

Pakistan has dismissed as “baseless” the allegations against its High Commission staffer in Bangladesh who was asked to leave the country after being found indulging in terror financing including circulating fake Indian currency notes.

Based on intelligence reports, the Sheikh Hasina government asked Pakistan to remove Mohammad Mazhar Khan, a non-diplomat attaché at the consular section of the High Commission in Dhaka, after his involvement in terror financing and currency forgery racket was found.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasneem Aslam confirmed the official had come back to Pakistan.

“The incident [expulsion] is unfortunate and all allegations against him are baseless,” she said.

The Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka has not only been under pressure due to the incident but is also being closely watched by Bangladeshi secret services, Dawn news reported.
