Kulbhushan Jadhav case: India retaliates by ending bilateral talks

Media reports in Pakistan said they were arrested for alleged involvement in anti-state activities. Pakistan claims its security forces had arrested Mr Jadhav from Balochistan province on March 3 a year ago after he reportedly entered from Iran.

He confessed before a magistrate and the court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency to plan, coordinate and organize espionage and sabotage activities aiming at destabilising and wage war against Pakistan by impeding the efforts of law enforcement agencies for restoring peace in Balochistan and Karachi.

It is also worth mentioning that Pakistanis incarcerated in Indian prisons have not been provided consular access for years, despite repeated requests and follow-up by the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
