Indian Envoy Meets Jadhav In Pak Prison

The meeting between India’s Deputy Commissioner to Pakistan, Gaurav Ahluwalia and Indian Kulbushan Jadhav concluded in Islamabad, sources told ANI. Islamabad had granted consular access to Jadhav.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by the Pakistan military court on the basis of extracted confession of “espionage and terrorism” after a closed trial in April 2017.

It is not yet clear whether the meeting was impeded or not. The access was provided in line with the verdict of the ICJ delivered on July 17.

Earlier in the day, Ahluwalia met Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal regarding the consular access to Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by the Pakistan military court on the basis of extracted confession of “espionage and terrorism” after a closed trial in April 2017.

In a major diplomatic victory for India, the ICJ, in July, had asked Pakistan to comply with the Vienna Conventions and provide consular access to Jadhav and to ensure “effective review and reconsideration of his conviction and sentences”. (ANI)
