Iran Probes Indian ‘Spy’ Kulbhushan Jadhav’s Business Operations
India has acknowledged the alleged “RAW agent” Kulbhushan Jadhav as a retired Indian Navy officer.
India’s efforts to secure consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav – held in Pakistan for being a spy – have slowed down. According to The Indian Express sources, Iran has put the former Naval officer’s business operations in Chabahar port under the scanner.
Jadhav, an alleged “RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent” was reportedly arrested in Balochistan after he entered from Iran and was accused by Pakistan of planning “subversive activities” in the country.
Investigations to determine whether or not Jadhav’s mechanised dhow Kaminda may have been used to run trafficking operations are underway.
A Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson told The Indian Express that India had not yet received any communication from Pakistan on its request for consular access to Jadhav, made immediately after an edited video of his statement to local investigators was released on 29 March. Jadhav had purportedly admitted to being engaged in arming and financing Baloch insurgents, operating from his base in Chabahar Free Trade Zone.Report in The Indian Express
India has acknowledged Jadhav as a retired Indian Navy officer, but denied the allegation that he was in any way connected to the government.
