New Delhi: Slamming Pakistan for making a doctored video of an arrested ex-Indian Navy officer, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju on Wednesday said the neighbouring country was cooking up stories to defame India.

Rijiju said the release of the video by Pakistan Army of an arrested ex-Indian Navy officer purportedly "confessing" his "involvement" in terror activities in Balochistan at India's behest will have no impact on international platforms.

 

"It was a completely doctored video, fake video made by Pakistan. They are just cooking up stories and doctoring videos to defame India," he told reporters here.

The Union Minister of State for Home said the Pakistans allegations will have no impact on international platforms.

The head of Pakistan Armys Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lt Gen Asim Bajwa and Federal Information Minister Pervez Rashid had released the video yesterday in Islamabad, saying Kul Bhoshan Yadav "confessed" to working for Indian intelligence agency RAW to "foment trouble" in the restive province of Balochistan.

Yadav had been arrested recently in Pakistan, which described him as an officer of the Indian Navy, a claim debunked by the Indian government which said he had no link with the Government since his premature retirement from the Navy.

Sources said there is no proof that the retired navy officer, who owns a cargo business in Iran, was arrested in Balochistan as claimed by Pakistan and his abduction from Iran can not be ruled.

Yadav owns a small ship and used to carry cargo from Bandar Abbas and Chabahar ports in Iran and other adjoining areas to various destinations, sources said.
