Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav was granted second consular access on Thursday, Pakistan media reported.Indian officials are presently at Pakistan Foreign Office. Earlier, New Delhi had asked Islamabad to give “unconditional consular access” to Jadhav, as per sources.
Pakistan claimed that Jadhav had refused to file a review plea on the Pakistani court military court’s judgment which awarded the death penalty to the former naval officer on charges of espionage. India said that he had been coerced into doing that.
“Last time what they did was insulting to his mother, father and wife and insulting to India as a whole. So we want that consular access should be unconditional,” Arvind Singh, Kulbhushan Jadhav’s childhood friend, told ANI.
