India refutes Pak's claim of visa review for Jadhav's motherJuly 13, 2017 17:20
Pakistan today said that it was considering a visa application of the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav for a visit to meet her son who was sentenced to death by a military court.
However, the ministry of external affairs said that India has not got any information on change in visa and consular positions in Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
Pakistan's remarks came two days after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi said that she had written a "personal letter" to Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz asking for approval of Avantika's visa application so that she may travel to Pakistan.
She also said that Aziz did not even respond to her letter.
"I wrote a personal letter to Mr Sartaj Aziz for the grant of her visa to Pakistan. However, Mr Aziz has not shown the courtesy even to acknowledge my letter," she had tweeted.
Jadhav, 46, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military tribunal in April on charges of espionage and terrorism.
Pakistan claims its security forces arrested him from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran.
