Sushma Swaraj hits out at Sartaj Aziz over Pak visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother


New Delhi: Union minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday used strong words to hit out at Pakistan’s foreign affairs head Sartaj Aziz for not showing the courtesy to acknowledge her letter on a visa for the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian sentenced to death in Pakistan.

However, any Pakistani national asking for a medical visa would be granted one immediately if Aziz recommended it, she stressed.

Swaraj tweeted that she had written a “personal letter” to Aziz on the request of Avantika Jadhav to meet her son.

Jadhav, a former navy man arrested by Pakistan last year on charges of spying, was sentenced to death by a military court earlier this year. Multiple requests from New Delhi for consular access have been denied. India has moved the International Court of Justice, which on May 18 restrained Pakistan from executing the death sentence.
