India renews demand for consular access to Jadhav


The government of India says it is ready to negotiate with Pakistan to promote the welfare of its people through negotiations with Pakistan, and is demanding a consular approach to Kulbhushan Jadhav and another Indian, Hamid Nehal Ansari.

This hope to cooperate on humanitarian issues was expressed by New Delhi and in 2008 it exchanged lists of nationals with the prisoners of Islamabad and their opponents under the bilateral agreement. Under the agreement, the two sides will share the list twice a year on January 1 and July 1.

"India is committed to addressing all humanitarian issues related to prisoners and fishermen," the Indian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

List of exchanged prisoners

Last year, India called for cooperation on humanitarian issues.


However, due to the tense relationship between the two countries, progress has been hampered by the prolonged release period for civilian detainees.

The joint judicial commission to resolve the problems of fishermen and other detainees has not been active since October 2013, when Pakistani officials visited Indian prisons.

"In this situation, we are talking about the release of prisoners," he said, pointing out that "we are waiting for confirmation of the nationality of Indians who are eligible for release and repatriation."

India requested the Pakistani government for "early release and repatriation of Indians, Indian defense agents and fishermen missing, and ships for which India has confirmed their nationality."

Pakistan also authorized Kulbhushan Jadhav and Hamid Nehal Ansari to "give early access to permanent consular".

He said Ansari is looking for a girl who is going through an online crime in Afghanistan.

India appealed to the International Court of Justice by requesting a consulate for Jadhav, a research and analysis wing agent convicted and executed for espionage and terrorism. The ICJ continued to enforce Jadhav until the final judgment on the case was reached.

Prisoner statistics
Pakistan has a total of 546 Indian prisoners.

Indian prisoners have 52 civilians and 494 fishermen. Seven of the prisoners will be released on July 10, the FO said. All are fishermen except for one of the captives to be released.

Earlier on January 6, Pakistan released 219 Indian prisoners.

India did not openly share the Pakistani people in jail.
