The US has also slapped similar curbs on Pakistani diplomats and embassy staffers in the US, the report said.There was no official word and reaction from the US embassy.

The reports came days after Pakistan has repeatedly denied US Embassy employees entry into Peshawar city in the country's volatile northwest region, police said.
