Police also impounded the vehicle and took the diplomat's cards for verification.

Ausburn was immediately detained by the police and was moved to the Secretariat Police Station and was released only after getting written communication from foreign ministry confirming his diplomatic position.

The incident occurred Sunday night near Secretariat Chowk at the Constitution Avenue when the U.S. diplomat identified as Chad Rex Ausburn, Second Secretary at USA embassy in Islamabad crashed his vehicle, Toyota jeep (QN-374 ICT), into a motorcycle being ridden by two persons.

Nazakat has been charged with Section 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

An FIR was lodged against USA embassy security officer, Taimur Iqbal Pirzada, for pushing around policemen, including the duty officer.

The U.S. Embassy said the American diplomat's role in the accident had been resolved. In this photo, Pakistani protesters carry placards during a demonstration against the killing of a local resident in a auto accident involving a USA diplomat in Islamabad, April 25, 2018.

Earlier in April, Col. Joseph Emanuel Hall, a diplomat at the embassy, struck a Pakistani motorcyclist in Islamabad, killing one person and injuring another.

According to a report in the English-language newspaper, Dawn, Ausburn apparently refused to step out of the vehicle following the accident but did so after police officials arrived at the scene. Resultantly, Ateeq died on the spot while Raheel suffered serious injuries and was hospitalised.

Hall's name has since been placed on Pakistan's "black list", preventing him from leaving the country pending a court case against him. A man was killed and another was injured in the accident.

In the first week of April, another United States diplomat had hit two motorcycle riders near the zoo here. In November 2010, a member of the US Regional Affairs Office hit another embassy's vehicle causing damage to both the vehicles at Shahrah-i-Jamhuriat near Radio Pakistan.
