Netizens in Pakistan have hailed the ‘Hero’ from Pakistan Army who played a key role in arresting Kulbhushan Jadhav from Balochistan. Pakistan Army’s late Captain Qadeer Ahmed reportedly worked as an undercover agent and was disguised as a beggar for three long years before arresting alleged Indian Spy – Kulbhushan Jadhav. Read the Pakistani Version.

After ICJ Ruling, Pakistan ‘Officially’ Grants Consular Access to Kulbhushan Jadhav

Kulbhushan Jadhav — an Indian Navy officer working for Indian covert agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) according to allegations of Pakistan — was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan while entering Pakistan from Iran.

Post the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) verdict in the Jadhav case, Pakistanis took to Twitter to praise Capt Qadeer for his role.

According to media reports in Pakistan, Captain Qadeer spent more than three years in Balochistan as a beggar, attired in dirty tattered clothes, and monitored  Jadhav’s activities.

He slept on the pavement and scoured dustbins while keeping a watch. Pictures of the young captain in his beggar avatar are also doing rounds on social media.

The report says, despite being born to a wealthy family, Qadeer chose a military career against his family’s wishes. He passed away on June 2, 2018, while his car was on way to Khuzdar from Quetta. A female relative sitting on the passenger seat sustained injuries in the accident in Lakoran area, while the officer died on the spot.

He was reportedly on his way home from an undercover duty to see his baby daughter who was ill.

As per the allegations of Pakistan, Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested in an intelligence-based operation in March 2016 from Balochistan after he crossed the border from Iran. He was travelling on a fake name but original Indian passport.

In a recorded video statement, he later confessed of working for RAW and involved in subversive activities both in Balochistan and Karachi, a claim rejected by India. New Delhi said Jadhav was pressurized to give these statement and requested Islamabad for consular access which was rejected that time.

In April 2017, the military court had sentenced Jadhav to death for his involvement in espionage and subversive activities. He later filed a clemency petition before army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa. His mercy plea was still pending before him.

Meanwhile, India approached the ICJ against Pakistan for not granting consular access to Jadhav. Pakistan repeatedly denied consular access requests based on its interpretation of the bilateral agreement that did not extend the consular facility to spies.
