Kulbhushan Jadhav's kin send Pakistan visa requests

Kulbhushan Jadhav's kin send Pakistan visa requests

Pakistan said that Jadhav is not an ordinary person as he had entered the country with the intent of spying.

Mumbai (Maharashtra), Dec 17 (ANI): After visa applications of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife have been processed by the Pakistan government, Jadhav's friend Tulsidas Pawar applauded the efforts of Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj behind the progress.

This came days after Pakistan again rejected India's plea for consular access to the death row prisoner Jadhav.

Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal on Saturday night tweeted that 47-year-old Mr. Jadhav's mother and wife had applied for visas.

According to FO spokesperson Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife had submitted visa applications "on humanitarian grounds". However, he did not give any timeline for approval of visas. It further alleged that, in violation of the Vienna Convention, the authorities of Pakistan are denying India its right of consular access to Mr. Jadhav, despite its repeated requests. In April 2016, Pakistan sentenced the RAW agent to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi. It was only after India approached the ICJ that a 10-member bench on May 18 2017 restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till adjudication of the case.

Kulbhushan Yadav was arrested previous year in Balochistan on charges of spying and stoking terrorism and sectarianism in the country.

India had contended that it was not informed of Mr. Jadhav's detention until long after his arrest and that Pakistan failed to inform the accused of his rights.

The Indian high commissioner in Pakistan will be allowed to accompany Jadhav's family during the meeting.
