Published

on

The case Kulbhushan Jadhav – the alleged Indian spy has been a bone of contention between India and Pakistan. Pakistan has however categorically rejected the possibility of any deal with New Delhi over Kulbhushan Jadhav who Islamabad claims is a dreaded terrorist.

India and Pakistan Celebrating – But Who Emerged Victorious in Kulbhushan Jadhav Case?

The Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal made it clear that all steps in regards to the self-confessed Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav will be taken as per the Constitution. “There will be no deal,” he affirmed.

Earlier on Wednesday, Pakistan Army quelled speculation over altering the Army Act to implement the International Court of Justice (ICJ) verdict on Kulbhushan Jadhav.

DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor, in a tweet, had said that various legal options for review and reconsideration of the case were being considered and final status will be shared in due course of time.

Earlier, Pakistan had granted consular access to the Indian Government after the ICJ ruling.  The announcement was made by Pakistan Foreign Office in a statement in which it said the decision to grant consular access to Indian Naval officer was taken in line with the ICJ decision.

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.
