AIR gets messages against Jadhav sentence from Pak listeners

The Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, who upon Kulbhushan's capture a year ago had disowned him and insisted that India had no connections to him, has recently claimed that Jadhav is infact "India's son", and that all avenues would be used to secure his release.

He reiterated that there was no credibility to Jadhav's secret military trial and described as "baseless" the charges of espionage and waging war against Islamabad levelled against him.

Growing by 14%, exports from Pakistan to India amounted to United States dollars 286 million in July-February.

Pakistan's sudden announcement on Monday, April10, that former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav has been sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial is a development fraught with danger. Sentencing Jadhav to death reassures radical anti-India Islamist parties in Pakistan of Bajwa's unwavering commitment to the "Pakistani cause" and will likely bolster Bajwa's status among such militant groups as well as some in the army.

Sartaj Aziz questioned that why the RAW agent was using fake identity impersonating as a Muslim and possessing two passports one with Hindu name and the other with Muslim name. It also claimed that he was "a serving officer in the Indian Navy". "We need to know how he came to be in Pakistan in the first place".

Earlier this week, Pakistan sentenced Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav to death on charges of espionage and subversive activities in Pakistan.

This was conveyed by Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad Gautam Bambawale to Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua during a meeting sought by him.

He has the right to appeal within 40 days to an Appellate Court.

He said detailed trial was held and all relevant laws, including Evidence Act and recording of statement before a magistrate, were followed.

Pakistani Army, which is not happy with the efforts of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in developing good relations with India, saw Kulbhushan as an opportunity to undo what Nawaz Sharif wanted to do.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said that India will go "out of the way" to ensure justice to Jadhav who is an "innocent kidnapped Indian" and his execution will be taken as a "pre-meditated murder".

"He was sentenced as per the law of the land".

"Inflammatory statements and rhetoric about "pre-meditated murder" and "unrest in Balochistan" will only result in escalation, serving no useful goal", Radio Pakistan quoted Aziz as saying. "In any case, we will not tolerate this", Bhamre said.

Giving details Aziz said 'Letter of Assistance requesting specific information and access to certain key witnesses was shared with India in January but there has been no response so far.
