KULBHUSHAN JADHAV, who was arrested in Balochistan and described as an “Indian spy” by Pakistan, became a businessman after taking premature retirement from the Navy and often travelled across the world, according to sources close to his Mumbai-based family.

Expressing shock at his arrest, sources identified Jadhav as the son of Sudhir Jadhav, who retired as an Assistant Commissioner of Police in Mumbai around eight years ago. They added that his uncle, Subhash Jadhav, was in charge of the Bandra police station in 2002 when the hit-and-run case was registered there against Bollywood actor Salman Khan.

Sources said the family stays in Hirnandani Gardens, an upmarket area in suburban Powai, but did not reveal the nature of Jadhav’s business. They said that his relatives learnt about the arrest late on Friday after the news was made public. The family suspects that Jadhav was being “framed as part of a larger political conspiracy”, said sources.

Bhushan last spoke to his family members around three months ago, they said. “He sought premature retirement from the Indian Navy to start his own business and travelled around the world in connection with his business,” said sources close to the family.

“He carried all the necessary documents whenever he travelled out of the country. He has travelled around the world in connection with his business,” they said, adding that the family was planning to leave for its hometown in Solapur over the weekend.

According to Pakistani officials, one of the passports recovered from Bhushan was allegedly issued from Sangli in Maharashtra in the name of Husain Mubarak Patel.

    Guys let me make it further clear. He was on fake pport with different name on Pport than real. Once he was tortured he disclosed his real name. In my opinion, he was arrested by ISI long ago. They carried out investigations . Once everything was established they disclosed information on media. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;1. What was his business ?lt;br/gt;2. Why did he come to Pak?lt;br/gt;3. Why he was issued fake Pasport ?lt;br/gt;4. Why did he admit links with separatists. ??lt;br/gt;5. Will he be given access to INDIAN emby?? I DONT THINK SOO. YOU ARE MESSING WITH "ISI" in its own terrotry.

      Most of the so called Hindus who were kicked out of stan were not Hindus at all. They were people who migrated from Central Asia on their 3000 year journey. They were originally kicked out for their atrocities they carried out in Central Asia. Jinnah, knowing very well their atude is soaked in blood, took the risk of driving them out of stan, cleverly out smarting those who claimed they are smart. If they had been let to live there they would be doing the same atrocities what they are doing to Indians now. The final kick out need to be completed.

        How does Jadhav's family become a story? Every body is related to somebody who is earning a living to keep the family in tact. Poor, shoddy journalism.

                This gives stan all the ammunition it needs, to attack India as a state sponsoring disruption in stan, and it couldn't have come at a worst moment.

                    I have met a number of Hindi people who, because of torture, left Karanchi and now living in India. In era where world over Islamic fudamentalism is being talked and Mr. Trump is taling about kicking them out from their country, how can Pak lie sustain. India has atleast accepted that Mr. Jadhav is an Indian citizen. stan has never accepted in the same way.

                        Who knows the facts ? When Jihadis are under international pressure they can "create" anything to divert attention even by kidnapping/ framing. They are the biggest known criminals in the world ! In the Middle East what the coppers say about s in Arabic: "Wallaha hi kulu stani " !

                                  If he is not a spy what was the reason to change the name. Lets accept tbe fact and appologise. Sky will not fall, rather the poor officer and his family including little children should not suffer. In the first instance RAW should admit that he was there officer and in the second place they should pledge for not doing again. Be brave and show courage. Accept the fact

                                      Is IE reporting a full cover "headline" story on the indian spy? and media ombudsman/govt are to be a silent spectator to this. Also, all other news agencies are reporting the official story instead of "scoops" on the person's personal life. Seemingly the overarching theme here is to drive home the point that our intel agencies/govt are doing something wrong in balochistan?
