No proof Mumbai man was spy: Aziz
Pakistan’s foreign policy chief Sartaj Aziz acknowledged on Wednesday that there was no “conclusive evidence” against Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was arrested in Balochistan in March on charges of being an agent of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
Speaking in the Senate or upper house of Parliament, Aziz said the “dossier on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav contained mere statements”. “It did not have any conclusive evidence.” However, hours after Aziz’s remarks were reported by the media, the foreign office in Islamabad said the statement attributed to him was “absolutely incorrect”. The military had claimed that Jadhav had been involved in subversive activities in Karachi and Balochistan at the behest of RAW since 2013. It further claimed he had confessed to playing a role in the deteriorating law and order situation in Karachi.
