Pakistan foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz has blamed the Indian officer of being indulged in 'subversive and terrorist activities in Pakistan'.

Though, India has accepted that Jadhav is a retired Indian Navy officer, but has claimed that he is in no way connected to the government. “The said individual has no link with Government since his premature retirement from Indian Navy. We have sought consular access to him,” Indian ministry’s spokesman Vikas Swarup said.

The Pakistan army, however, maintains that Jadhav was directly handled by the RAW chief, the Indian National Security Adviser and the RAW joint secretary.
