Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said Islamabad, however, rejected New Delhi's demand for consular access to Jadhav , stating the equating the case of the Indian spy to civilian prisoners was a "travesty of logic".
The FO added that five Indian nationals who had completed their sentences were repatriated on June 22, but 20 Pakistani civilian prisoners who had completed their sentences in India were still awaiting repatriation, whereas consular access to 107 Pakistani fishermen and 85 civilian Pakistani prisoners is also pending.
According to foreign office, this step is consistent with the provisions of the Consular Access Agreement between Pakistan and India, signed on 21 May 2008, under which both countries are required to exchange lists of prisoners in each other’s custody twice a year, on 1 January and 1 July, respectively.
Following is the list comparison;
