India bans medical visas for Pakistani patients for no reason


ISLAMABAD: India has banned issuance of medical visas to Pakistani citizens without giving any reasons for this action, or any prior notice.

India is planning to to make several changes in the rules, making the visa process relatively difficult.

The Foreign Office has expressed their reservation over this move that will affect thousands of patients from Pakistan.

According to the Indian media, Narendra Modi’s government is also planning to review business and religious pilgrimage visas offered to Pakistani citizens.

The diplomatic relations between the two countries haven’t been well after Pakistan issued death sentence to RAW agent Kulbhushan Jadhav.

The Indian spy was tried through Field General Court Martial (FGCM) under Pakistan Army Act (PAA).  He was arrested on March 3, 2016 through a Counter Intelligence Operation from Mashkel, Balochistan.

In March last year, Pakistan Army released a video in which the Indian spy confessed to New Delhi’s involvement in terrorist activities in Balochistan.

After much hue and cry from the neighbouring country, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said India was sponsoring cross-border terrorism in Pakistan. He made it clear that Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence was a warning for those conspiring against the country.
