#RisingTensions: Pakistan to eject last remaining Indian journalists ahead of Modi appointment

The last remaining Indian journalists in Pakistan will likely leave the country this week after the Pakistani government refused to renew their visas, according to reports.

Snehesh Philip of the Press Trust of India and Meena Menon of The Hindu are expected to leave Islamabad later this week after becoming the latest journalists to have their visa renewal applications rejected.

Philip and Menon first arrived in Islamabad in August 2013 under an agreement between Pakistan and India which allows for the posting of two journalists from each country in the nations' respective capitals.

Journalist visas are processed by the Ministry of Interior, but the military and its intelligence arm, the Inter-Services Intelligence, have the final say over who is allowed to stay.

No reason has been given for why Ms. Menon and Mr. Philip have to return to India.

Some analysts believe that tensions between the countries could escalate with the widely expected appointment of Hindu nationalist leader Narendra Modi as India's new Prime Minister on 16 May.

According to analysis by the Committee to Protect Journalists, Pakistan remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists with dozens of reporters harassed and killed.

22 murders of journalists remain unsolved.
