Responding to a media query in New Delhi on Thursday evening, Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Pakistan has no locus standi on the building. He said, once renovated, the Jinnah House will be used effectively like the Hyderabad House in the capital.

On Indian national Hamid Nehal Ansari, who returned to his country from Pakistan on Tuesday, Mr Kumar said, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj inquired about his well being and also asked him as to how he landed in Pakistan.
