External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi during the weekly media briefing said, “Our Ambassador got consular access to meet all eight in prison on December 3.”

He said that the India was extending all legal and consular assistance to the eight men. Bagchi also said that two hearings had already taken place on November 30 and September 23 this year.
