A former ‘laundry boy’ whom Kulbhushan Jadhav had once helped on Friday joined a human chain outside the former Navy officer’s residence here, seeking his release.

“Jadhav saab helped me a lot. He helped me in my studies and his family treated me as one of their own,” said Vijay Kanuajia, who had worked for the family in the past.

“The Jadhav family used to wait for me to have dinner with them, even as late as 11 pm,” the youth said.

“Pakistan should immediately release Jadhav saab as he isn’t a spy,” said Kanuajia, who is a graduate and aims to join the Armed Forces.

The human chain was formed to demand Jadhav’s release and to condemn Pakistan for ‘kidnapping’ him. Jadhav has been awarded the death sentence by a military court in Pakistan for alleged involvement in terrorism and espionage.
