Pakistan on Tuesday lodged a strong protest with Bangladesh over a burglary at its high commission in Dhaka.

 Unidentified burglars broke into the consular section of Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka and took away computers, the Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement. 

 "We have lodged a strong protest with the Bangladesh's authorities, both in Dhaka and in Islamabad, over this incident," the FO said.

 The burglary in Pakistan High Commission, located in a highly secure diplomatic area, is a matter of grave concern, it said.

 "It has been underscored that as a host, it is the responsibility of the Bangladesh government to provide full security to the Pakistan High Commission premises," the FO said. 

The theft, which took place on Thursday last week, was immediately reported to Bangladesh's police and an FIR was lodged.

 Bangladesh's Foreign Office was also informed and strengthened security was requested. 

The Bangladesh authorities have been requested to carry out a thorough investigation, share a detailed report with Pakistan and bring the culprits to justice, the FO said.
