Kulbhushan Jadhav under extreme pressure to parrot a false narrative: MEA

Kulbhushan Jadhav Consular Access: A senior Indian diplomat on Monday met Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav in Islamabad, a day after Pakistan agreed to grant consular access in line with the ICJ verdict in July. Jadhav is an Indian national who was awarded death sentence by a Pakistani military court without a fair trial. India has maintained that Jadhav, 49, was a Navy officer, and was abducted from Iran by Pakistan and charged for espionage and terrorism. A military court had sentenced him to death in April 2017 following which India filed an appeal at the International Court of Justice. The ICJ in July ordered a stay on the hanging of Jadhav and asked Pakistan to grant consular access to the Indian national in accordance with the Vienna Convention of 1963. Pakistan had on Saturday agreed to grant consular access to Jadhav on Monday in line with the ICJ verdict.”,”headline”: “Kulbhushan Jadhav under extreme pressure to parrot a false narrative:MEA
