New Delhi, Dec 8: Pakistan has vehemently denied that their foreign policy chief Sartaj Aziz had said that there was not enough evidence against Kulbhushan Jadhav who was arrested on charges of spying.
Jadhav had been arrested in Balochistan and the Pakistan military claimed he was involved in subversive activities.
They even went on to call him an Indian spy.
Speaking at the Pakistan senate, Aziz had said that there was no conclusive evidence against Jadhav.
The dossier on Jadhav contains mere statements and did not have any conclusive evidence, Aziz also told the senate.
Pakistan's foreign office was however quick to deny these statements and said that the evidence against Jadhav was conclusive.
A home ministry official in New Delhi informed OneIndia that Aziz had indeed spoken the truth about Jadhav.
It was always our case or stand that Jadhav is a former Indian Navy officer and was not part of any espionage at the behest of the Research and Analysis Wing.
Pakistan had picked him up and branded him a spy. This was a blatant lie, the official added.
In fact the arrest of Jadhav was merely a tactic to divert attention from the probe into the Pathankot attack.
Pakistan was under immense pressure to act against those involved in the Pathankot attack.
The arrest had come at a time when India was asking Pakistan to hand over Jaish-e-Mohammad boss, Maulana Masood Azhar.
