It is to be noted that on March 3, 2016, Pakistan arrested Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav while entering Mushakhel area of Balochistan province from Iran’s border area of Sarwan, in a major breakthrough against terrorist network in the country. Passports, various documents, maps and sensitive instruments were recovered from the Indian spy’s possession.
In the initial investigation, the Indian detective acknowledged that he was a service commander rank officer in the Indian Navy and had been working for the Indian intelligence agency ‘RAW’ since 2013 while conducting communal riots in Pakistan, separating Balochistan and Karachi from Pakistan. It had an important mission.
The Judge of the International Court of Justice said that the High Court of Pakistan can review the magical case. In our case, the Supreme Court of Pakistan also has the right to review.
Pakistan was of the view that the Vienna Convention does not apply in the Kulbhushan case, so Klubhushan cannot be granted access to the Indian Consular.
Nevertheless, Pakistan granted consular access to Indian spy and terrorist Kulbushan Jadu on September 2, 2019, respecting the judgment of the International Court of Justice.
