NEW DELHI, India: The Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent Kulbhushan Yadav’s wife has reportedly contacted the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking his help for release of her husband from Pakistan.
Yadav’s wife argued that since her husband is a serving officer of Indian Navy; therefore, the Indian government must intervene for his release.
In addition, she also made a contact with the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership and sought the help.
Her plea has reaffirmed Pakistan’s stance that the detained RAW agent is an in-service officer of the Indian Navy; however, earlier New Delhi though admitted that Yadav is an Indian citizen but denied his existing affiliation with Navy.
Kulbhushan Yadav was arrested by Pakistan’s law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in first week of March while he was infiltrating into Pakistan from the Saravan border area of Balochistan with Iran.
Later in a confessional video statement, Yadav admitted that he was still the serving officer of Indian Navy and entered Pakistan with assigned tasks to carry out subversive activities in Balochistan and Karachi.
Yadav confessed that he was working for RAW and his ultimate aim was to disrupt the development process in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Kulbushan Yadav continues to be in custody of Pakistani LEAs and being interrogated in the light of his confession statement.
