Pakistan on Monday officially turned down India’s request for consular access to alleged RAW agent Kulbushan Jadhav now under its arrest, a media report said.

“Jadhav will not be granted consular access,” Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar said, alleging that Jadhav had entered the Pakistan territory for some “special objectives”, Geo TV reported.

The Pakistani security forces had arrested Jadhav from Balochistan in March and alleged that he was “a serving officer in the Indian Navy and deputed to the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).”

Kulbushan Jadhav has been accused by Pakistan of planning “subversive activities” in the country.

Earlier, India’s External Affairs Ministry had said that Jadhav formerly worked for the Indian Navy and said its high commission in Islamabad was seeking consular access to him.
