Dalbir Kaur calls Jadhav’s meeting with family ‘a cruel joke’


NEW DELHI: Lashing out at Pakistan for not allowing former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet his mother and wife freely, sister of Sarabjit Singh, Dalbir Kaur, on Tuesday termed the entire exercise by Islamabad as a “cruel joke”.
Dalbir dubbed the meeting, which the Pakistan held as a “humanitarian gesture” to mark the birthday of its founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, a “black spot” in the name of humanity.
“What happened with us in 2008, same thing happened with Jadhav’s family. Only the difference was that we met Sarabjit inside a jail and they in a well planned drama.…. It is the same story like Sarabjit’s.
“(Pakistan) They are not worth trusting. It is a black spot in the name of humanity. We can call it a well planned drama by Pakistan,” she said and added that India should take up Jadhav’s case even more forcefully now.
Dalbir also went to Pakistan in 2011 to meet his brother Sarabjit, who was sentenced to death over terrorism charges. He, however, died in the prison after some inmates attacked him in 2013.
