India reacts to Jadhav video, calls it a ‘propagandistic exercise’


New Delhi, Jan 4: Reacting to alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav recent video, India on Thursday said Pakistan is simply continuing its practice of putting out coerced statements that carry no credibility. 

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said: “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.”

“Absurdity of a captive under duress certifying his own welfare while mouthing allegations of his captors clearly merits no comment”, he added.

In the latest video released by Pakistan, Jadhav says he has not been tortured in custody and that he saw an Indian diplomat yelling at his mother and wife after they met him last month.

Sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April 2017, Jadhav thanked Islamabad for letting him meet his mother and wife.

Pakistani authorities arranged the meeting between Jadhav and his family on December 25.
