Kulbhushan Jadhav faces more charges in Pakistan, say report

Former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is facing death row for allegedly spying in Pakistan, is now undergoing trial with fresh charges of terrorism and sabotage.

The former Navy officer was in April a year ago sentenced to death by a military court after being found guilty of espionage. In May a year ago, the International Court of Justice stayed his execution after India argued that Pakistan violated international conventions by denying consular access to him.

He said only the spying case against Jadhav has been concluded out of the multiple cases against him. According to a report by Pakistani news agency, Dawn, the fresh trial against Jadhav is also being conducted in a military court. But New Delhi has remained stubbornly uncooperative, the paper said.

Pakistan has claimed that Mr. Jadhav was a serving Indian Navy official recruited by the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to supervise "terrorist activities" in Balochistan and Karachi.

Islamabad has also sought information on Jadhav's Navy service file, bank record of his pension payment, and issuance of the passport in the name of Mubarak Hussain Patel.


The two said that Pakistan has also asked for details of properties owned or occupied by Jadhav, including those he purportedly acquired with the alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, in Mumbai, Pune and other parts of Maharashtra.

The Pakistan government has approached Indian officials about this matter on a number of times, but New Delhi has not been sufficiently cooperative about this matter.

Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal said Pakistan was in no hurry to execute Jadhav as he still had his mercy appeal pending before the army chief, Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa. "Chinese and Russian interlocutors are very clear on the fact that they do not want the bilateral issues between India and Pakistan to spill over on SCO discussions".

The ICJ is now hearing an Indian petition challenging Pakistan's refusal to grant consular access to the spy. The ICJ has set separate deadlines for India and Pakistan for the filing of the written pleadings by them in the case. On January 5, 2018 Pakistan put out a video of Jadhav in which he claimed on camera that he had not been tortured by the Pakistan officials and instead accused an Indian diplomat of "yelling" at his mother and wife after their meeting with him.
