According to sources, the three junior-level officials, who were working in the language department of the High Commission, returned recently to the headquarters of the ministry of external affairs (MEA) in New Delhi after they apprised senior officers in the mission about the attempt.
They said a decision on their return to Islamabad will be taken after the due process of investigation into the episode was over.
Currently, the three officials are being questioned by concerned authorities to know about further details of the plot by the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence).
The attempt to lure the three officials came to light at a time when there has been a chill in the bilateral relationship between the two countries over a host of issues, including cross border terrorism.
When contacted, the MEA did not comment on the incident.
