India 'concerned' over Jadhav's health; seeks details of his trial

Friday, April 21, 2017

New Delhi: India has sought from Pakistan details of the appeal process in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case in which it has made 15 attempts to get consular access to the Indian national given death sentence by a military court there.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said India was "concerned" as it has no information about the location or the condition of Jadhav, who Pakistan says was in their custody.

Noting that the ministry had "called in" the Pakistan deputy high commissioner yesterday, he said Pakistan has been asked to provide details of the trial against Jadhav.

"Pakistan claims there has been legal proceedings against Jadhav. If there has been any proceedings against (him), we would, officially, like to see details of those proceedings," Baglay said.

India would also like to know how it can proceed in the case, and asked Shah about various options available in Pakistani legal system, Baglay said, noting that India is still awaiting a reponse to its demands for consular access and details of the trial proceedings against Jadhav.

"Yesterday also we asked for consular access to Jadhav and in the past we made 13 such requests," Baglay said, adding it was important given the nature of charges levelled against the retired Indian Navy officer.

"We don't know anything about Jadhav's location or condition in Pakistan. It is a matter of concern for India. We are concerned about his health and whereabouts," he said.

On reports that Pakistan will present a dossier on Jadhav with evidence of his alleged spying activities, Baglay merely said that in past also Pakistan has attempted to "misinform" the international community.

India had also reiterated that Jadhav was innocent and false charges were framed against him.
