Indian High Commissioner to Maldives Rajeev Shahare has been summoned by the Foreign Ministry here, amid deepening political crisis after the Supreme Court ordered postponement of the presidential run-off.
"We had a meeting with the Indian High Commissioner last night, but we cannot reveal details of the meeting," a Foreign Ministry official was quoted as saying by the Sun.mv online.
The ministry called on all foreign parties to refrain from interfering with internal matters of the country.
On Friday, Shahare met with Elections Commissioner Fuwad Thowfeek, local media reported, without elaborating. It is believed that Shahare was summoned by the ministry to protest his meeting with Thowfeek.
This was the second time an Indian High Commissioner has been summoned by the Foreign Ministry. In February, the then high commissioner D M Mulay was summoned after former President and opposition Maldivian Democratic Party presidential candidate Mohamed Nasheed sought refuge inside the compound of the Indian High Commission in Male to evade arrest following his failure to show up in court for his trial over the detention of a judge.
