Pakistan seems to be in ‘arm-twisting’ mode with Kulbhushan Jadhav episode. Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife and his mother met him on December 25 last year. The whole meet was controversial as later it was revealed that Pakistan harrassed the two women. Pakistan faced global outrage for their inhuman behaviour and India gained diplomatic mileage with the whole scenario. This time around, Pakistan has released a video where Kulbhushan Jadhav is heard saying that he saw an Indian diplomat yelling at his wife and mother during the face to face meeting.
In the alleged video, the sound footage of Kulbhushan Jadhav says,”Why were Indian diplomats yelling at my mother after her meeting with me? During the meeting, it looked like my mother had been beaten and brought here on a plane. 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?”
There is no denying the fact, either the video is doctored or Kulbhushan Jadhav has been forced to make such statements. No doubt, it is a case of humanitarian crisis and Pakistan has been playing with Kulbhushan Jadhav and trying to stage a spy story out of a forced captive. Nevertheless, the Indian government is already trying through back-channel and it remains to be seen what happens next in the Kulbhushan Jadhav Episode.
