NEW DELHI: Indian media has come up with another framed story about the arrest of the Indian RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav from Iran, quoting the Pakistan Army General and the former ISI officer General (R) Amjad Shoaib .
In an article published on the India Today website, the publication claimed that “an ex-ISI official has admitted that Kulbhushan Jadhav was captured in Iran.”
Puncturing Pakistan's claim that it arrested Kulbhushan Jadhav on its own soil, Amjad Shoaib — an ex-ISI official and a retired Lieutenant General — has admitted that the ex-Indian Navy officer [Jadhav] was captured in Iran, India Today said in its article published on May 24.
Rubbishing the Indian media’s assertions, Lt Gen Shoaib said: “The video [circulated on the Indian media] is doctored. I have countless recorded interviews with many television channels where I have clearly said that Jadhav was operating from [Iranian port city of] Chabahar but was apprehended in Balochistan.”
“The outlet should have checked with me,” he said, adding that, “India Today did not contact me in this regard.”
The former general disclosed that the word “operated” from his recorded interview was snipped out from the video that was being circulated in the Indian media.
