New Delhi, April 16: India is yet to receive copies of the Pakistani chargesheet against alleged spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and the copy of the judgment sentencing him to death, informed sources said on Sunday. “We are yet to receive the chargesheet and the copy of the judgment on Jadhav’s sentence,” said a source in the Ministry of Exterl Affairs. Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale met Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmi Janjua in Islamabad with a request for consular access to Jadhav and also sought a copy of the chargesheet against him. The request for meeting Jadhav was turned down. “We demanded a meeting (with Jadhav), but they denied,” Bambawale told reporters after meeting Janjua. India said it has sought consular access to Jadhav 13 times earlier, but the permission was refused each time. (IANS)
