India Will Appeal Alleged Spy's Death Sentence, Says Envoy
India has stepped up diplomatic pressure on Pakistan over the death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav.
The Indian Express quoted foreign ministry sources as saying that the initial idea was to block all visas for Pakistani nationals, but it was made a decision to "test" the waters by first targeting a "high visibility" group.
A military court in Pakistan earlier this week found Jadhav guilty on two counts of espionage and sentenced him to death.
Pakistan on Friday said Indian "spy" Kulbhushan Jadhav was sentenced according to the country's laws and that India had not responded to "specific information" sought on him in January. Jadhav was arrested in Balochistan, Pakistan, over charges of terrorism and spying for India's intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW).
India on Thursday criticised the Pakistan government for not sharing Jadhav's location and details of his condition and said that the worldwide norm to provide consular access was not followed. "Khalil would take cigarettes and cellphone memory cards with him, besides pictures of bridges, mosques and security installations", the DSP said, adding that the suspect had given at least two active SIM cards to Indian officials. India has already said if Jadhav were to be executed, it will be considered as a "premeditated murder".
The paper said the measure could be the "first retaliatory step" by India against the death sentence awarded to Indian naval commander Kulbhushan Jadhav by a military court in Pakistan. Jadhav has been charged with espionage and waging war against Pakistan.
Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale on Friday asked Pakistan to provide a copy of the charge-sheet filed and the judgment given against Yadav while strongly raising this issue.
According to reports, Jadhav was picked by Pakistan's agencies from Iran where he was doing some business. "We are trying everything to get access to Jadhav", he said talking to reporters.
The adviser said Jadhav's "confessional statement" had been recorded before a magistrate and the proceedings were conducted under proper laws. The government is also likely to review its attempts in the past few months to encourage people to people contacts with Pakistan. It has also informed Pakistan that it will appeal the order after analysing the Pakistan Army Act, sources said.
