Pakistani rights activists accuse their High Commission in India of interfering in their personal lives
Zulfiqar Shah, a human rights activist, journalist and a writer; who was born in Pakistan's Sindh province; and his wife Fatima Shah, who too is a human rights activist, are refugees who have applied for asylum in India in April 22, 2013.

They did so after they were allegedly persecuted and poisoned by Pakistan in their native country and then in Nepal.

Zulfiqar Shah while narrating a brief account of his persecution through an em-mail to this citizen journalist said, "I am in Delhi undergoing medical treatment, including detoxification and treatment for other damages caused by heavy metal poisoning applied in Kathmandu, Nepal on December 18, 2012."

He added, "Although I repeatedly forget things due to my associated memory loss, I still keep on writing to make myself feel my own existence still counts since I am no longer an activist on the ground in Sindh, Pakistan. In fact, I believe I was given heavy metal poisoning by the Pakistani intelligence agencies Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI) with local facilitation in Nepal."

Both of them are protesting in front of Press Club of India in national capital since October 14, 2013 while accusing the Pakistani High Commission (PHC) in New Delhi of interfering in their medical treatment.

Zulfiqar Shah alleged that at least three hospitals in Delhi have refused proper medical treatment to them due to Pakistan's interference. The two rights activists are demanding that the Indian Government should take steps to stop Pakistan's High Commission from interfering in their treatment and other personal affairs.

Moreover, they are also demanding that Indian authorities should not put bar upon their bank account opening as well as other finance related issues.
