Pakistan has recently claimed that alleged Indian spy and former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav has made a mercy plea before the country's Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and have released a second 'confessional video' featuring Jadhav, dated April 2017.
However, in the video, Jadhav seems to have sustained minor injuries, including a mark close to his forehead, raising doubts on how genuine the 'confession' is and if he made the video under duress.

Amid the reports from Pakistan that they would be accorded a "warm welcome" if he participates in the SAARC ministerial conference in Islamabad later this month, reportedly Finance Minister Arun Jaitley might not be attending.
As per government sources, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das will represent India at the two-day event to be hosted in Islamabad from August 25-26.

Given the current hostile atmosphere in Indo-Pak bilateral ties, the sources in New Delhi said it was far from certain whether Jaitley would travel to Islamabad for the meeting to be hosted by Pakistan in Islamabad on August 25 and 26.
Pakistan's Finance Ministry said that Pakistan will play a "good host" and avoid a repetition of the tense atmosphere that prevailed during Home Minister Rajnath Singh's recent visit and accord a "warm welcome" to Jaitley.
The ministry officials said there are chances of "gracious handshakes" between Pakistan finance minister Ishaq Dar and his Indian counterpart if Jaitley decides to attend the ministerial conference.
The government has finalised arrangements for the upcoming SAARC meet, a Pakistan finance ministry statement said, adding that Dar chaired a meeting to review arrangements for the conference.
Pakistan would play the role of a "good host" and try to keep the overall ambience positive, the statement added.
The ministerial conference comes in the shadow of Singh's visit to Islamabad earlier this month where barbs were exchanged between Singh and Pakistan Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, who only had a tense and uneasy handshake during the SAARC meeting.
The duo also traded repartees over issues of terrorism and violence in Kashmir.
