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.
