Terrorism case lodged against Indian spy Jadhav

QUETTA: The Balochistan Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) registered a First Information Report (FIR) against detained Indian ‘spy’ Kulbushan Jadhav under various sections of the Anti-Terrorism Act, sources in the Balochistan government confirmed on Tuesday.

Sources in the provincial home and tribal affairs department said the case against the Indian Navy officer, who was arrested from Chaman district last month, was lodged after instructions were received from the federal interior ministry a few days ago.

Law enforcement agencies had announced the arrest of Jadhav during an intelligence-based raid in Balochistan’s Chaman last month.

The Indian Foreign Ministry had confirmed that the arrested man was a former Indian Navy officer, but the Pakistani government claimed to have recovered travel documents and multiple fake identities of Jadhav, establishing him as an Indian spy who entered into Balochistan through Iran — holding a valid Iranian visa.

In a video shown to media during a joint press conference by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) head Lt Gen Asim Bajwa and Federal Information Minister Pervez Rashid on March 31 Kulbushan Jadhav confessed to involvement in terror activities in Balochistan and Karachi.

After Jadhav’s arrest, Pakistan summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale to lodge a strong protest over ‘India’s spying activities’ in Pakistan, besides apprising the international community about the arrest.
