Pakistan’s English newspaper ‘The Nation’ which is traditionally aligned to Pakistani establishment and is known for criticising India said, death to spy spikes tensions and observed that the decision would further increase tension between the two countries.

The influential ‘Dawn’ newspaper termed the decision as a rare move and said, the development comes at a time when tensions between Pakistan and India are already running high.
