Pakistan to submit new dossier on Jadhav to UN: Report

Press Trust of India  |  Islamabad 

has prepared a new dossier about alleged militant activities of Indian prisoner on death row Kulbhushan Jadhav and will share it with the UN and foreign envoys stationed here, media reports have said. The new dossier is based on Jadhav's early testimonial and statements given in front of the Field General Martial about his alleged involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in and Balochistan, reports said. The document contains the attested report of Martial General, as well as the proceedings timeline, The Nation reported. Jadhav, 46, was tried through Field General Martial (FGCM) under the Army Act (PAA) and was awarded the death sentence.

Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa confirmed the death sentence last week. The documents will also contain details of arrests and raids done by security agencies on Jadhav's tip-offs. "The dossier will be handed over to different ambassadors in The Pakistani envoys across the world will also present it to their host states," the paper said. The document will also be shared with the United Nations and other global organisations, it added. On Friday, Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale said they would appeal against the death sentence to Jadhav and demanded from a certified copy of the charge-sheet as well as the army order in the case, besides seeking consular access to the retired Indian navy officer. claims its security forces had arrested Jadhav from the restive province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran. It also claimed that he was "a serving officer in the Indian Navy." The Army had also released a "confessional video" of Jadhav after his arrest. India had acknowledged that Jadhav had served with the navy but denied that he has any connection with the government. The Jadhav episode could further strain the India- ties which were hit after attacks in Pathankot and Uri by Pakistan-based terrorists last year.
