  • Retired Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav

Dr. Ashok Diwakar, the Vice Chancellor of Starex University said, "Kulbhushan Jadhav is the son of India, recognized by the Indian government as a former naval officer, and accused by Pakistan of spying".

Mr. Jadhav, 46, was awarded death sentence by the Field General Court Martial last week, evoking a sharp reaction in India which warned Pakistan of consequences and damage to bilateral ties if the "pre-meditated murder" was carried out.

Pakistan has prepared a new dossier about alleged militant activities of Indian prisoner on death row Kulbhushan Jadhav and will share it with the United Nations and foreign envoys stationed in Islamabad, media reports have said.

Major General Ghafoor said Jadhav's death sentence process will move ahead as per the law, adding it will go in the applet court and the army shall wait for the verdict.

The court granted death sentence to Jadhav for allegedly indulging in "espionage and sabotage" activities against Pakistan. "We want justice for him as he is innocent".

Pakistan has prepared a new dossier about alleged militant activities of Indian prisoner Jadhav and will share it with the United Nations and foreign envoys stationed here, media reports have said.

The Pakistan Army had earlier said there will be "no compromise" on the issue of death sentence awarded to Jadhav.

The Pakistani official claimed all legal requirements were fulfilled in the trial of Mr Jadhav which resulted in his conviction.

The documents will also contain details of arrests and raids done by Pakistan security agencies on Mr Jadhav's tip-offs.

Pakistan claims its security forces had arrested Jadhav from the restive Balochistan province on March 3 a year ago after he reportedly entered from Iran. It also claimed that he was "a serving officer in the Indian Navy".
