Pakistan Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Wednesday admitted that the government was presented with only “insufficient evidence” on alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav who is under detention.
Addressing a full Senate chamber, Aziz said the dossier on Yadav contained mere statements.
However Pakistan has released a statement which says statement attributed to Sartaj Aziz on alleged Indian spy is 'absolutely incorrect'.
“It did not have any conclusive evidence,” he was quoted as saying by the Geo TV.
“What the dossier contained was not enough. Now it is up to the concerned authorities how long they take to give us more matter on the agent,” Aziz said.
Kulbhushan Yadav, who was reportedly arrested in Balochistan after he entered from Iran, has been accused by Pakistan of planning “subversive activities” in the country.
Pakistan Army had also released a “confessional video” of Yadav, who said he was the serving Indian Navy officer.
India has Kulbhushan Yadav as a retired Indian Navy officer, but denied the allegation that he was in any way connected to the government.
