Jadhav's family was harassed in Islamabad, had to remove mangalsutra, bindi, bangles: MEA


Jadhav's family was harassed in Islamabad, had to remove mangalsutra, bindi, bangles: MEA

New Delhi, Dec 26 (ANI): After the meeting of Kulbhushan Jadhav with his mother and wife at the Pakistan Foreign Affairs Ministry in Islamabad on Monday, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar addressed a media briefing in the national capital on Tuesday. Kumar said the Pakistani press was allowed on multiple occasions to approach family members closely, harass and hector them and hurl false and motivated accusations about Jadhav.

This was despite a clear agreement that the media would not be allowed close access. He added that under the pretext of security precautions, the cultural and religious sensibilities of family members were disregarded.

This included removal of mangal sutra, bangles and bindi, as well as a change in attire that was not warranted by security. For some inexplicable reason, despite her repeated requests, the shoes of the wife of Jadhav were not returned to her after the meeting.
