India has accepted Pakistan’s offer of consular access to its national Kulbhushan Jadhav. Sources in External Affairs Ministry said India’s Charge d’affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia will be meeting Jadhav today. India hoped that Pakistan will ensure right atmosphere so that the meeting is free, fair, meaningful and effective in keeping with the letter and spirit of the International Court of Justice’s orders.
India has been seeking consular access to Kulbushan Jadhav for the last three years. The matter of denial of consular access was taken to International Court of Justice by India. The court gave a unanimous decision in favour of India.
