“The honorary consulate continues to function normally providing the necessary services. I wouldn’t comment on footage, especially footage that hasn’t been confirmed,” she added.
The official said India had taken up the matter with Australian authorities.
“We have met with the government. Did you hear the Prime Minister talking about it with the Australian PM. And we have regularly filmed whenever such incidents happen. Unfortunately they have occurred several times,” Bagchi said.
“Our teams are in contact and that’s how we quickly address the matter. I won’t go into the composition or level of the teams, but I’m in touch,” she said.
