8 note verbales to Pak for consular access to Jadhav
India has sent eight note verbales to Pakistan for consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav and 42 such communications in case of Nehal Ansari, External Affairs Ministry said on Thursday.
Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup also rejected as “completely baseless” Pakistan’s allegations against Jadhav, an Indian national and a former Indian Navy officer.
Asked about media reports quoting Pakistan Foreign Advisor Sartaj Aziz as saying there was no “conclusive evidence” against Jadhav which were later denied by the Pakistan Foreign Ministry, Swarup said, “We have seen conflicting media reports about this issue. This is a pattern we have seen in the past as well.”
