    Background: CHINESE CONSULAR OFFICIALS HAVE NOW CLOSED DOWN THEIR OFFICES IN CALCUTTA AND FLOWN HOME. THE CLOSURE FOLLOWS INDIA'S DECISION TO CLOSE TODAY (SATURDAY) ITS TWO CONSULAR OFFICES ON CHINESE-HELP TERRITORY - ONE IN LHASA IN TIBET AND THE OTHER IN SHANGHAI.

    THE CHINESE OFFICIALS MOVED OUT YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). MOST OF THEIR FAMILIES HAD BEEN REPATRIATED EARLIER. AN INDIAN SPOKESMAN SAID THE STEP HAD BEEN TAKEN AS A RESULT OF RESTRICTIONS PLACED ON THE INDIAN CONSULATES. INDIA'S EMBASSY IN PEKING HOWEVER HADN'T BEEN SUBJECTED TO THE SAME RESTRICTIONS, HE SAID, AND IT WAS OPERATING NORMALLY, AS WAS PEKING'S EMBASSY IN NEW DELHI.

    BUT CHINA IS CLOSING DOWN ITS CONSULAR OFFICES IN BOMBAY AS WELL AS THE ONE IN CALCUTTA. IT BLAMES INDIA FRO UNSCRUPULOUSLY OBSTRUCTING THEIR FUNCTIONING AND WRECKING THE CONSULAR AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.
