India Writes To Pakistan For Consular Access To Kulbhushan Jadhav and Four Other Prisoners


India on Tuesday wrote to Pakistan to grant it consular access to Indian prisoners, including Kulbhushan Jadhav, and immediately release 10 Indian civilian prisoners lodged in jails whose nationality has been confirmed by Islamabad.

Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was awarded the death sentence by a Pakistani military court under Pakistan Army Act-59 (PAA- 59) on charges of espionage. India has, however, maintained that Jadhav is innocent.
