NEW DELHI - Ungrateful India responds over Pakistan consular access to RAW agent Kulbhushan Jhadav consular access in Pakistan custody.
India on Monday got the first consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav but he was under a lot of pressure to repeat Pakistan's false narrative during the meeting with Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia. The Ministry of External Affairs said that while the details of the meeting are awaited, the pressure on Jadhav from Pakistan was clear.
MEA spokesperson Ravish Kumar said that the pressure on Jadhav was amply clear. "While we await a comprehensive report, it was clear that Shri Jadhav appeared to be under extreme pressure to parrot a false narrative to bolster Pakistan’s untenable claims," he said.
"We will decide a further course of action after receiving a detailed report from our Cd’A (Charge d’ Affaires, High Commission of India) and determining the extent of conformity to the ICJ (International Court of Justice directives."
Kumar also said that Monday's consular access ' was part of the binding obligations of Pakistan, as ordered by the ICJ, to ensure effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence awarded to Shri Jadhav through a farcical process.'
