Pakistan has released another doctored video of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been put on death row by Islamabad on the basis of false spying charges. The video released by Pakistan’s Foreign Office shows Jadhav as thanking Islambad for its gesture and saying that he felt his mother and wife were scared during the recent meeting with him. Jadhav’s wife and mother had met him in Pakistan on December 25. Pakistan had humiliated Jadhav’s mother and wife by asking them to remove their bangles, bindi and mangalsutra. Pakistan even took their shoes and never returned.
Incidentally, the doctored video was released on a day when the BSF foiled an infiltration bid at the international border in Jammu and also destroyed to Pakistan posts. Media reports claim as many as 10-12 Pakistani personnel were killed when BSF retaliated to an infiltration bid.
“I want to tell India that I am a commissioned officer in the Indian Navy. Why are you lying about my working for an intelligence agency?” Jadhav is shown saying in the video. He added that his mother was “very happy” to see him “in a good state”.
