Pre-meditated murder, India says if Pak hangs Jadhav

By Vicky

India has said that if Pakistan goes ahead with the hanging of Kulbhushan Jadhav, it would consider it to be pre-meditated murder. Pakistan on Monday decided that it would hang Jadhav on charges of espionage. India has also summoned the Pakistan High Commissioner and said that if the basic norms of law and justice are not followed then it would be considered as a case of pre-meditated murder.

Kulbhushan Jadhav

The Ministry for External Affairs said that Jadhav was a businessman who was kidnapped from Iran by Pakistan. We had sought consular access, but the same was not given, the MEA also said.

Meanwhile India has stopped the release of prisoners from Pakistan. A dozen Pakistan prisoners who were to be released on Wednesday will not get freedom. In the wake of the decision to hang Jadhav, the release of the Pakistan prisoners has been put on hold.
