After a firm denial issued by the ministry of external affairs of a confessional video released by Pakistan of a purported Indian spy, the home ministry has also termed it as “doctored and fake”.”The fake and doctored video made by Pakistan will have no effect on international platforms. The problem within Pakistan is one thing, then they are cooking up stories and doctoring videos to defame India,” said minister of state for home, Kiren Rijiju.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Alleging that Kulbhushan Jadhav, a former Indian Naval officer, was caught spying on behalf of India’s external espionage agency, R&AW, Pakistan government had released a confessional video clip of the said officer on Tuesday kick- starting a diplomatic spar between the two countries.In the purported controversial video statement, Jadhav identified himself as Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav number 41558Z, a serving officer of the Indian Navy. In the purported confessional statement, Jadhav further said that his cover name was Hussain Mubarik Patel which he had taken for doing some intelligence gathering for the Indian agencies that included holding meetings with Baloch insurgents and carry out activities with their collaboration.The Pakistani claims were countered with strong denial by India. Claiming that Jadhav was a former Indian naval officer doing business in Iran and is under Pakistani custody under unexplained circumstances, the MEA in a statement said, “The individual claims to make the statements of his own free will not only challenges credulity but clearly indicates tutoring.”Categorically rejecting all allegations of Jadhav’s involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan, the government further said, “Our enquiries reveal that he apparently was being harassed while operating a legitimate business from Iran. While we probe this aspect further, his presence now in Pakistan raises questions, including the possibility of his abduction from Iran.”While India has strongly demanded Jadhav’s consular access, the request has not been heeded to by the Pakistani authorities so far.
