So much so, two officials were reportedly abducted by the Pakistani security agencies and were apparently tortured to make them confess under duress about their involvement in a hit-and-run case. 

The abducted officials were handed back to the Indian High Commission on the same day at 9 pm. While the officials did not bear life-threatening injuries, it was reported that they did bear injuries marks on their neck, face and legs.
