Pak concerned about citizens' safety in India, wants CCTVs in homes

Pakistan has expressed concerns about the safety of its citizens in India. This concern follows the death of Sanaullah Ranjay, a Pakistani held prisoner in India, who was attacked by another jail inmate. Sanaullah was admitted to hospital where he breathed his last.
Following his death, Pakistan asked for an international probe into the matter. Manzoor Ali Memon, spokesperson for Pakistan high commission said "This is a matter of grave concern. We believe there has been foul play, and want CCTVs installed in/around places visited by Pakistani citizens. For example, we want one in Sania Mirza's bedroom in Hyderabad, we're concerned about Shoaib Malik's safety and don't want him to come to harm."
