Alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav sentenced to death in Pakistan
Kulbhushan Jadhav who was accused by Pakistan of being spy has been sentenced to death on charges of espionage. He was arrested in Balochistan in 2016 on charges of spying on Pakistan, a charge that India had vehemently denied.
India had on several occasions sought his extradition, but Pakistan refused to give in. The Pakistan media had been reporting that a dossier on him had been prepared following which he faced prosecution.
Pakistan had termed him as an agent of the Research and Analysis Wing. Pakistan had after his arrest released a video of him making a confession about him being an Indian spy. However India said that the video was a doctored one. The Indian agencies who conducted forensic examination of the video said that it was heavily doctored. It was said that at various points the facial expressions do not match what is being said in the voice over.
Jadhav was picked up on March 3 and his arrest was announced only on March 24 2016. This India had said only indicated that Pakistan resorted to third degree treatment to extort a confession out of him.
