Indian High Commission in Pak organises cycling ride to mark 73rd I-Day


Islamabad , Aug 15 : On India's 73rd Independence Day, the High Commission in Pakistan organised a cycling ride for 73 kilometers to celebrate the occasion with traditional fervour and enthusiasm.

Charge d'affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia unfurled the national flag of India and read out the speech that President Ram Nath Kovind had addressed to the nation on Wednesday.

Guests at the event also paid tribute to the bravehearts.

The event was commemorated without the presence of Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan, Ajay Bisaria, who returned to his country earlier this week, days after Islamabad asked New Delhi to call him back following the scrapping of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

In wake of the change in the status of Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan has downgraded its diplomatic ties with India and suspended the operations of Samjhuta and Thar Express.

New Delhi was also informed earlier that Pakistan would not be sending its High Commissioner-designate to India Moin-ul-Haq. He was expected to officially take charge on August 16.
