New Delhi/Islamabad: After a month’s gap, Pakistan on Sunday for the second time offered India consular access to imprisoned former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav on Monday, but sources in New Delhi said India was still “evaluating” the offer. India didn’t react officially to Pakistan’s offer made Sunday evening.

It may be recalled that about a month back, Pakistan had similarly offered India access but New Delhi had rejected that offer due to certain conditions imposed by Pakistan, that included the presence of a Pakistani official at the meeting and the presence of CCTV cameras and recorders in the room where the meeting would take place. New Delhi had instead told Islamabad through diplomatic channels “to provide unimpeded consular access”.

Location: India, Delhi, New Delhi
