The British High Commission had sought consular access to Michel after he was arrested in the first week of December.
“Consular access has been granted to Michel,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.
It is learnt that consular access to Michel was granted on Thursday.
Michel is one of the three middlemen, being probed by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate in the case, besides Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa. Michel has denied the charges.
Asked about Pakistan’s call for talks with India to improve strained ties, Kumar accused Pakistan of trying to mainstream terror organisations, and said there was no seriousness in its statement on dialogue.
India has been maintaining that talks and terror cannot go together.
