Pakistan’s armed forces are fully capable and prepared to respond to any spectrum of threats, said Nawaz Sharif
Responding to concerns expressed by members cutting across party lines, Singh said Pakistan had told the media there that Jadhav was carrying a valid Indian passport.
A look at how some of the leading national newspapers in Pakistan reported on Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence.
Kulbhushan Jadhav has been sentenced to death by a Pakistan military court after it finding him guilty of espionage.
“Our position is very clear, there is no evidence of wrongdoing by Kulbhushan Jadhav,” Swaraj said.
Rajnath Singh said that the government strongly condemns Pakistan’s decision
The source, who spoke on the condition that he not be named, said that the family is distraught and hopes the Government will do “whatever it takes at whatever level” to bring relief.
New Delhi-based diplomatic sources said the Government of India had served Pakistan with 13 separate diplomatic missives seeking access to Jadhav since March 25, 2016.
A top government source told The Indian Express that New Delhi will explore all “diplomatic and other” options to obtain Jadhav’s release.
“The death sentence given to Kulbushan Jadhav shows yet again how Pakistan’s military court system rides roughshod over international standards,” Amnesty International’s South Asia Director, Biraj Patnaik said.
Kulbhushan Jadhav has been charged with espionage and “waging war” against Pakistan.
There are many Pakistani nationals lodged in our jails who are charged with serious crimes, does this mean they too should be given the same treatment.
It will be regarded as “premeditated murder” if Pakistan carries out the death sentence
“It is significant that our High Commission was not even informed that Jadhav was being brought to trial. Senior Pakistani figures have themselves cast doubt about the adequacy of evidence.”
A statement by the Pakistani Inter-Services Public Relations office said on Monday that former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav who was arrested on charges of espionage in March last year has been awarded a death sentence.
