A Top Baloch Leader Reveals How Kulbhushan Jadhav Was Kidnapped By ISI

Union Minister Ramdas Athawale today said Pakistan should revoke the death sentence awarded to former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav and sought the intervention of the United Nations and the USA in the case.

Accusing India of "defeating the spirit of bilateralism" by defying talks over the Kashmir issue, Pakistan's National Security Adviser Nasser Janjua has said that the two neighbours "cannot remain enemies forever" and they need to engage and resolve their disputes.

Rejecting the Indian claims that Jadhav's execution would be "pre-meditated murder", Asif said that due process of law had been followed in the case. If anything, he is the victim of a plan that seeks to cast aspersions on India to deflect worldwide attention from Pakistans well-known record of sponsoring and supporting terrorism.

The Court Martial found Jadhav guilty of all the charges, the ISPR said. In the Rajya Sabha, Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad, while expressing outrage over the development, said the Indian Government should provide Jadhav the best of the lawyers to ensure that truth prevails.

Pakistan has sentenced an Indian RAW agent Kulbhushan Jadhav to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi, the ISPR said Monday. Indian authorities say that Jadhav was abducted by the Taliban and sold off to Pakistan.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj said that there is no evidence against Jadhav.

Aiyar, who has often been criticized for his support for Indo-Pak friendship, maintained that New Delhi can also "go around the world to drum up support" in favour of Jadhav.

Addressing a parade of Pakistan Air Force Academy graduating cadets at Asghar Khan in Khyber- Pakhtunkhwa, Sharif said that cooperation rather than conflict, and shared prosperity rather than mutual suspicion, is the hallmark of Pakistan's policy. BJP MP and former Home Secretary raised doubts on whether Jadhav has already been killed and the "death sentencing" is a cover-up.

"Sartaj Aziz said himself that there is no case against Jadhav".

The minister explained that Jadhave has 60 days to challenge the verdict in a appellate military court before filing mercy petitions to the army chief and president of Pakistan respectively.

Simranjit Singh Mann condemned the Indian state for holding double standards on the issue of death penalty.
