Sartaj Aziz, the Foreign Advisor to Pakistani’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has told a full Senate chamber that the dossier on alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav contained just statements, and more evidence needed, Pakistani media reported.
Aziz said this in response to questions on the progress of investigations against Jadhav and why they are not being shared with international community to fix India for destabilising Pakistan.
“It (the dossier) did not have any conclusive evidence,” Aziz was also quoted as saying by Geo TV.
“What the dossier contained was not enough. Now it is up to the authorities concerned how long they take to give us more matter on the agent,” he said.
Pakistan had claimed that Jadhav, who was reportedly arrested in Balochistan in March this year, is a RAW agent. The country has also raked up Yadav’s arrest at every international forum to garner support for its contention that RAW was fomenting terrorism in Balochistan.
Pakistan Army had also released a “confessional video” of Jadhav, who said he was the serving Indian Navy officer. Jadhav’s Indian passport was in the name of Hussein Mubarak Patel.
India has repeatedly asked for consular access to Jadhav.
Sudhir Jadhav, father of Kulbhushan, called the new developments ‘extraordinary’ and said he is happy that the stain on his son has been finally erased.
Jadhav has been imprisoned since March 3, without access to legal representation.
