India rejected the Pakistan claim of accepting a diplomat to meet Kulbhushan Jadhav, along with Jadav’s mother and wife, a consular access. When foreign minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told a Pakistani media channel, Indian officials downplayed the comments by the Pakistani minister, maintaining that the Indian diplomat was only accompanying Jadhav’s family and it cannot be termed as “consular access”. He also, to the media, said that, if India was in Pak’s place, Pak would not have been given such a consideration. Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 after he entered Pakistan from Iran. The naval officer was then sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April on charges of espionage and terrorism. However, India managed to stay the execution by appealing to the International Court of Justice in May. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
