Pakistan provides second consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav on Indian request
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan provided second consular access to Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav on the Indian request on Monday.
According to a press release issued by the Foreign Office, the first consular access under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR) 1963 was earlier provided by Pakistan on September 2, 2019. The mother and wife of Commander Jadhav were also allowed to meet him on December 25, 2017.
Two consular officers of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad were provided unimpeded and uninterrupted consular access to Commander Jadhav.
Commander Jadhav is in Pakistan’s custody following his arrest from Balochistan in a counter-intelligence operation on March 3, 2016. During the investigation, Commander Jadhav confessed to his involvement in terrorist activities inside Pakistan that resulted in loss of many precious human lives.
He also made important revelations about RAW’s role in sponsoring state terrorism in Pakistan.
Pakistan remains committed to fully implementing the International Court of Justice (ICJ)’s judgment of July 17, 2019. It is hoped that India will cooperate with the Pakistan court in giving full effect to the said judgment.
