Islamabad,

In response to India’s contentions that shoes of former naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife Chetankul Jadhav were not returned to her after the meeting, Pakistan foreign office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal has said that the decision was taken on ‘security grounds’.

Pakistan has categorically rejected India’s allegations that Jadhav’s family was harassed and termed them as baseless.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Dr Faisal said that if Indian concerns were serious, the guests or the Indian Deputy High Commissioner should have raised them during the visit with the media which was readily available.

‘We do not wish to indulge in a meaningless battle of words and our openness and transparency belies these allegations,’ he said.

“There was something in the shoe (of Jadhav’s wife) and it is being investigated,” Pakistan Daily Dawn news quoted Dr Faisal as saying.He said Jadhav’s wife had been provided replacement shoes and all her jewellery was returned to her.

He said that the fact is that Cdr. Jadhav’s mother publicly thanked Pakistan for the humanitarian gesture and this was recorded by the media.”Nothing more needs to be said on the issue,” Dr Faisal added.
