Islamabad, December 8: Sartaz Aziz, Advisor on Foreign Affairs to the Pakistan Prime Minister at Senate chamber meeting on Wednesday admitted that the government was presented with “insufficient evidence” on alleged Indian raw agent Kulbhushan Jadhav who was arrested by Pakistan’s security forces.
As soon as this matter aroused, Pakistan foreign ministry came up with the statement in related to Aziz was “absolutely incorrect”. In response to a media query regarding the statement given by Aziz in the full Senate Chamber pertaining to Kulbhushan Jadhav, a Foreign Office spokesman said the statement attributed to the Foreign Affairs Adviser is absolutely incorrect.
The Foreign Office spokesman said Aziz had instead said that investigations regarding Jadhav and his network are still ongoing and that the dossier on him shall be completed as soon as conclusions are reached.
Like to tell you that, in the press statement Pakistani officials have also warned India not to interfere in internal affairs of country. According to statement, “There is irrefutable proof against Kulbhushan Jadhav, who had also made a public confession in March this year,” the Foreign Office said in its statement, adding that, “The Adviser also condemned the continued Indian interference in the internal affairs of Pakistan and urged the international community to take immediate notice.”
Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested by Pakistani security forces during a raid in Balochistan in March this year. As soon as he was arrested Pakistani authorities declared that Jadhav has immediately admitted that he had been involved in various activities in Karachi and Balochistan and he was working on behalf of India’s external intelligence agency, the research And Analysis Wing (RAW) since 2013. Pakistani authoritiy s also claimed that Jadhav has confessed to playing an important role in deteriorating the law and order situation in Karachi.
From the other side, Indian government had already issued five to six note verbales to the Pakistan foreign ministry to get consular access to Jadhav, but Pakistan has not yet showed any signs for allowing it.
Pakistan has also claimed that Kulbhushan Jadhav is a commander-rank officer with the Indian Navy, while India maintains that he was already retired from the Navy in 2002 and have nothing to do with the Indian government when he was arrested from Balochistan. Meanwhile, India already denied that Jadhav is a RAW agent and maintains that he is a businessman.
