However, the Indian ministry clarified to Pakistan that Jadhav had no relation with respect to be an Indian agent of RAW. The arrested person was not residing in India. India also clarified that he was arrested in a foreign country excluding India and Pakistan, which create suspicion on the grounds of claims.

India also mentioned that Home Minister of Balochistan said Jadhav was picked up from Chaman, but ISPR (inter services public relations) said Jadhav picked up from Saravan. This creates a suspected planned conspiracy from Pakistan towards the matter.
