According to Geo News, dismissing India‘s stance on former Indian Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, Pakistan in its reply has alleged that Jadhav is not an ordinary person and had entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out sabotage activities.
Citing sources, Geo News reported that that the reply also encompasses the charge-sheet against Jadhav and narrates Pakistan‘s stance in a comprehensive manner.
Earlier this month, Pakistan agreed to facilitate the visit Jadhav’s mother and his wife and also assured their safety, security and freedom of movement in the nation, India‘s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said.
Jadhav was arrested in Pakistan‘s Balochistan Province over charges of alleged involvement in espionage and subversive activities for India‘s intelligence agency – the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial (FGCM) in Pakistan this year in April.
India has appealed to the court to impose emergency measures for Jadhav’s execution to be suspended until the legal battle in Hague concludes, while also accusing Pakistanof violating the Vienna Convention by failing to provide him with consular access and for being in breach of international human rights law.
