India trying to highlight 'humanitarian' aspect of Jadhav: Pak

Press Trust of India  |  Islamabad 

today accused of trying to highlight the "humanitarian" aspect of Kulbhushan Jadhav case in the International of Justice to cover up its alleged "subversive activities" in the country.

Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria said that submitted its memorial on Jadhav case in the ICJ yesterday while will submit its counter memorial by December 13.

"is trying to bring out the humanitarian aspect of a person who has made a public confession on how he was launched by India to carry out subversive and terrorist activities in Pakistan," he alleged.

Zakaria said Jadhav, 46, has confessed many terrorist attacks within and India is trying to divert international community's attention from the real issue.

He said Jadhav and his accomplices have caused immense sufferings to the Pakistani nation and "we must be mindful of this fact while talking about him."

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military for "espionage and sabotage activities" in a "farce" trial early this year. Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa approved his execution.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav from the restive Balochistan province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran. However, India maintains that he was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
