Pakistan grants India consular access to Indian death-row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav

Pakistan has granted India consular access to Indian death-row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav, Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told a Pakistani media channel.

He said an official of Indian High Commission would accompany Jadhav’s wife and mother during their meeting with him, Geo News reported.

When asked if it constituted “consular access as an Indian official would be present in the meeting”, Asif categorically said, “Yes”.

“Had India been in place of us, it would not have given us this concession,” he said.

Indian Deputy High Commissioner in Pakistan JP Singh, to accompany Kulbhushan Jhadav’s wife and mother in their meeting with the Indian national, reports Pakistan media.

In India, officials downplayed the comments by the Pakistani minister, maintaining that the Indian diplomat was only accompanying Jadhav’s family and it cannot be construed as “consular access”.
