New Delhi, Dec 28 (ANI): Commenting upon the row surrounding Pakistan’s allegations of Kulbhushan Jadhav’s family carrying a ‘camera’ on their Islamabad visit, Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday branded the former’s allegations totally ‘absurd’. Alleging Pakistan of misusing Jadhav’s family reunion as a ‘propaganda tool’, Swaraj said, “Pakistan says there was a camera or a recorder in the shoes, nothing can be more absurd than this as she traveled in 2 flights with those shoes on. It is an absurdity beyond measure.” She added, “Not just his wife but bindi & mangalsutra of his mother were also removed, I spoke to her she told me that as soon as she reached, Kulbhushan asked her Baba kaise hain? Because he thought a mishap has taken place when he wasn't around.” She added that Jadhav’s mother, an alleged spy as claimed by Pakistan, was not allowed to communicate in Marathi and her intercom was switched off when she did not resist.
