LAHORE: Bharati Chaturvedi, the wife of Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria, reached Pakistan through Wagah border here on Wednesday for final pack-up after her husband returned to New Delhi last week.

Officials from the Indian High Commission received her at the border and escorted her to Islamabad, where she would stay for almost seven days to pack up and carry her family’s belongings back to India, in a hint that New Delhi has lost hope of normalisation of the diplomatic ties with Islamabad.

Islamabad recalled its envoy from New Delhi and urged India to do the same in reaction to abolition of special status of Indian occupied Kashmir by the Modi government.
