Indian spy sentenced to death in Pakistan

An Indian spy identified as Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was arrested in March 2016 by Pakistani security operatives on the grounds of espionage and sabotage has been sentenced to death.

Jadhav who was sentenced on charges of planning, coordinating and organising espionage activities was convicted by a military tribunal.

The Pakistani military in a statement said the convict was an Indian intelligence official who aided and financed terrorist activities in the south-western Balochistan province and the southern port city of Karachi.

“Today, [army chief] Gen Qamer Javed Bajwa has confirmed his death sentence,” a military statement said on Monday, without stating when the execution would take place.

Pakistan’s army released a video shortly after his arrest in which he confessed to having spent years sowing unrest in Pakistan and being tasked by India’s intelligence service with planning, coordinating and organising espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan “aiming to destabilise and wage war against Pakistan”.
