In a letter on Wednesday addressed to the Inspector General of Islamabad Police, the Embassy said seven police personnel including a woman, made an “unlawful entry” into its premises on Monday. “The mission staff reminded them that the premises of the embassy are sovereign territory of DPRK and asked them to immediately stop this brutal act,” it said. “But the police ignored the request, searched the storerooms at the backyard on the pretext of seizing some items and threatened the staff with guns.” (https://www.msn.com/en-in/news/world/north-korea-embassy-protests-raid-by-islamabad-police/ar-AAURfTp) DPRK stands for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the official name of the North. The police officials damaged the door and broke into a room in the basement, Dawn new quoted the letter as saying. A source at Shalimar police station said the raid was carried out after a tip-off that a “huge quantity of liquor” was present at the embassy.
