Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday asked India to provide adequate security to the PIA offices in the country and take action against "miscreants" who allegedly vandalised the office of Pakistan's national carrier in New Delhi.

"The Pakistan High Commission immediately took up the matter with the Ministry of External Affairs, asking them to provide adequate security to the PIA offices in New Delhi and Mumbai, as well as to take action against the miscreants," a spokesperson of the Pakistan Foreign Office said in a statement.

"We have been assured by the Indian government that it would take all the necessary steps for the security of the PIA offices in India," the statement said. The four activists of right-wing Hindu Sena today went to all the three rooms in the PIA office in New Delhi, vandalising furniture and computers.

They also scattered some pamphlets while they dismantled a miniature replica of an airplane installed near the reception desk. One person has been arrested in this connection. The outfit blamed Pakistan in connection with the attacks at Pathankot and the Indian consulate in Afghanistan.
