- Pak police has kept the alleged detective at a secret place
- Pakistan has also accused Indian citizen Kulbhushan Jadhav of espionage
- In July this year, ICJ ruled against Pakistan’s claims in Kulbhushan case.
Islamabad Pakistan has become angry after the international court ruled in favor of India in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case. On Thursday, he once again claimed to have caught the Indian spy. Pak police say he has caught a detective from the city of Dera Ghazi Khan (DG Khan) in Punjab province, who has admitted to being an Indian.
According to Pak media reports, the alleged detective is named Raju Laxman. He was nabbed from the Rakhi Gaj area of DG Khan, 400 km from Lahore on Wednesday. Police say that Laxman was trying to get DG Khan from Balochistan province. He is currently taken to a secret location for further investigation.
Pak had said – Jadhav is not a businessman but a detective. Earlier , Pak had said that his army arrested Jadhav from Balochistan on 3 March 2016. He entered Pakistan from Iran. Pakistan claimed that Indian Navy officer Jadhav is not a businessman but a spy. However, India presented evidence claiming that Pakistan kidnapped Jadhav from Iran. Jadhav was trying to do business after retiring from the Navy there.
ICJ suspended Jadhav’s death sentence The International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled in favor of India last month in the case of execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian national by a Pakistan military court. The 16 judges of the court suspended Kulbhushan’s death sentence with a 15-1 majority. Court President Justice Abdulkawi Ahmed Yusuf said that the hanging would continue until Pakistan effectively reviewed and reconsidered the verdict.
Pakistan violates the Vienna Treaty – ICJ 1. Justice Abdulkawi Ahmad Yusuf of Somalia, the president of the court, said in a 42-page judgment that Pakistan would not be able to effectively review and reconsider its decision until Kulbhushan Hanging will be stopped.
2. ICJ said- Pakistan bypassed India’s negotiation with Kulbhushan and right to consular access. Pakistan did not allow India to provide a legal representative for Kulbhushan. Pak violated consular relation rules under the Treaty of Vienna.
3. The judges said – Pakistan deprived India of the right to negotiate and meet with Kulbhushan Jadhav. India appealed for consular access several times, which Pakistan turned down. It is an undisputed fact that Pakistan did not accept India’s appeal.
4. “Pakistan was obliged to give information to India regarding the arrest and imprisonment of Kulbhushan under the Vienna Treaty. Pakistan delayed the information of Jadhav’s arrest by three weeks, also violating the terms of the Vienna Treaty. Pakistan could not make it clear that it had prevented itself from fulfilling the terms of the treaty due to some alleged disturbance by India.
5. International legal advisor Reema Omer said- The court also said that Pakistan should reconsider its decision in the context of violation of Article 36 (1) i.e., grant of consular access.
