Raab criticised for ‘weak response’ to Jagtar Singh Johal plea

Dominic Raab has been criticised for his “weak response” to a plea from the first minister to help a Scot detained in India.

The foreign secretary said he was doing “all he can” to help Jagtar Singh Johal, who has been held under anti-terror laws for four years.

He said his ministers were in regular contact with Indian authorities.

In a letter, Ms Sturgeon asked him to meet Mr Johal’s family, but he declined to say whether he would.

Mr Johal’s brother, Gurpreet Singh Johal, said: “I shouldn’t be surprised by now by this sort of weak response, but part of me did hope that the UK government would listen to the first minister and take my brother’s case more seriously.

“Nicola Sturgeon made time to meet me; why can’t Dominic Raab?”
