RAW ‘spy’ arrested: India’s request for consular access under consideration, says Pakistan

ISLAMABAD(PTI): Pakistan on Thursday said it was considering India’s request for consular access to an alleged Indian spy detained in the country.

“A request by India for consular access (to Kulbhushan Yadav) is under consideration,” Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said in response to a question.

Kulbhushan Yadhav, who was reportedly arrested in Balochistan after he entered from Iran, has been accused by Pakistan of planning “subversive activities” in the country.

Pakistan Army had also released a “confessional video” of Yadav, who said he was the serving Indian Navy officer.

In the video, Yadav said that he arrived in Iran in 2003 and started a small business in Chahbahar. India has acknowledged Yadav as a retired Indian Navy officer, but denied the allegation that he was in any way connected to the government.
