New Delhi: Pakistani authorities have sent the shoes worn by Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife for forensic examination to determine the nature of the suspected presence of a foreign object.
A Delhi BJP leader ordered footwear online and gave the address of the Pakistan high commission here for its delivery to protest against the ill-treatment meted out to the mother and the wife of death row convict Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is lodged in a Pakistani jail.
The two women visited Pakistan recently and were forced to remove their mangalsutra, bindi, bangles and footwear by the Pakistani authorities before they were allowed to meet Jadhav through a glass screen.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga bought the footwear online and gave the address of the Pakistan High Commission for its delivery.
“Pakistan wants our slippers. Let’s give them slippers. I have ordered slippers and sent to Pakistan High Commission,” he tweeted. He also launched an online campaign requesting the “nationalists” to send slippers to Pakistan.
“Over a hundred people sent footwear to Pakistan High Commission within a few hours after I did it,” he claimed. Jadhav’s mother and wife met him on Monday inside the Pakistan Foreign Office building in Islamabad under unusual circumstances – he was separated from the two women by a glass screen, and they conversed through an intercom.
