Jadhav video: India rebuffs Pakistan


Team Udayavani, Jan 5, 2018, 9:24 AM IST

Islamabad: India today rebuffed Pakistan for carrying out “propagandistic exercises” by putting out “coerced” statements by Kulbhushan Jadhav on video, and said such actions by Islamabad carry no credibility.

The hard-hitting response by India came after the Pakistan foreign ministry put out a video of Jadhav in which the 47-year-old Indian is purportedly asking India why it was “lying” that he was not working for an intelligence agency.

“This does not come as a surprise. Pakistan is simply continuing its practice of putting out coerced statements on video. It is time for them to realise that such propagandistic exercises simply carry no credibility,” external affairs ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

Jadhav also claimed in the video that the Pakistan government was taking good care of him. Reacting sharply, Kumar said, “The absurdity of a captive under duress certifying his own welfare while mouthing allegations of his captors clearly merits no comment.”

He also said that Pakistan is best advised to fulfil its international obligations, whether it pertains to consular relations or UNSC resolutions 1267 and 1373 on terrorism, and to desist from continuing violations of human rights of an Indian national.
