Pakistani Generals met in GHQ
Despite India's warning, Pakistan has kept its decision on Kulbhushan Jadhav's death sentence. Pakistan is not ready to compromise on this issue. The Corp commander's conference was held in General Headquarters of Garrison City in Rawalpindi on Thursday. In the meeting chaired by Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, there was a discussion about the hanging of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
In the meeting, it was decided that Pakistan won't bargain on the death punishment granted to Kulbhushan. Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) confirmed in a statement that this decision was taken at the core commander's meeting under the leadership of Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa.
Disappearance of Pakistan's ISI officer
It can't be ignored that Pakistan is rendering retribution for the vanishing of its former Army officer. According to media reports, there was discussion about the disappearance of retired Lieutenant Colonel Muhammad Habib, who apparently went missing from the Indo-Nepal border on April 5, a few days before the announcement of Jadhav's death sentence.
Indian Minister warned Pakistan
Significantly, India has warned Pakistan after the execution sentence for Kulbhushan Jadhav was announced. Sushma Swaraj, who is the Indian Minister of Foreign affairs has warned Pakistan over ramifications if they go ahead with the executing of the Indian spy caught red-handed in Pakistan.
This was said, during the budget session of Parliament where it was mentioned that the death sentence of Jadhav would be a 'planned killing' and Pakistan should think about the effects on bilateral relations. After the announcement of Kulbhushan's arrest, India denied Jadhav's Indian citizenship but now Kulbhushan is being portrayed as a national hero.
Pakistan refused Kulbhushan's request
On Thursday India was told that they have no information about Indian citizen Kulbhushan Jadhav. Foreign Ministry spokesman Gopal Bagale said that Kulbhushan Jadhav is innocent. On the location of Kulbhushan, the Ministry has said that they do not know about the current condition of Jadhav because Islamabad did not accept Jadhav's requests for contact with the Indian High Commissioner.
