    ISLAMABAD: Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was last year convicted and sentenced to death by a military tribunal for spying, is now undergoing trial on terrorism and sabotage charges, an official told Dawn on Monday.

    The Pakistan government has, meanwhile, on a number of occasions sought access to 13 Indian officials to ascertain information in the Jadhav case — a fact that is supposedly also mentioned in the counter-memorial submitted at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) by Pakistan. But New Delhi has remained stubbornly uncooperative.

    The official explained that Jadhav has multiple cases against him in which he had been indicted on terror- and sabotage-related charges. The cases were progressing, he said, emphasising the one relating to spying had only concluded.

    Jadhav was captured by Pakistani security forces on March 3, 2016, in Balochistan. He was in April last year sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial (FGCM) after being found guilty of espionage under Section 59 of the Pakistan Army Act (PAA), 1952, and Section 3 of the Official Secrets Act of 1923.

    Pakistan seeks access to 13 Indian officials to ascertain information in the case, but New Delhi remains uncooperative

    His appeals against the conviction have been rejected by the military appellate court and his mercy petition is lying with Army Chief Gen Qamar Bajwa.

    About the access to 13 Indian officials, the source said, multiple requests had been made to India.

    A source in New Delhi, meanwhile, disclosed that the officials whom Pakistan wanted to access included National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and a former RAW chief for their involvement in recruiting and directing Jadhav’s activities. Others that Pakistan wants to access include intelligence operatives, bankers and passport officials.

    The Pakistani source would not disclose the names of the 13 Indian officials that the government wants to quiz. He, however, said: “We want to reach Jadhav’s handlers.”

    Besides, Pakistan has sought information about his Navy service file, bank record of his pension payment (if there is one as India had been claiming that he was a retired officer), and issuance of the passport in the name of Mubarak Hussain Patel.

    Pakistani officials want to know how the passport in the name of Patel was issued and whether it was original or fake. “We have asked if the passport is fake (then) how he exited Mumbai and Delhi airports 18 times,” the source said.

    Particulars of Jadhav’s properties in Mumbai, Pune and other parts of Maharashtra, which he had acquired with the alias Hussain Mubarak Patel had also been demanded, the source said.

    The ICJ is currently hearing an Indian petition challenging Pakistan’s refusal to grant consular access to the spy. Memorial (by India) and counter-memorial (by Pakistan) have been submitted. The oral arguments are yet to commence as the court has allowed further written pleadings in the case by India till April 17, 2018, and a rejoinder by Pakistan till July 17. The world court had while ordering provisional measures in the case last May restrained the Pakistan government from executing him till it decides the case.

    The Foreign Office on Dec 25 hosted a meeting between Jadhav and his mother and wife. The meeting held as a goodwill gesture ended in a diplomatic spat between the two countries over the security checks Jadhav’s mother and wife underwent and the language restrictions during the meeting.

    Why need another trial? did they found new evidence? Already convicted and one thing to do is hang him and handover his body to India.

    Why would you NOT drag indians intelligence officials involved in tertorism in Pakistan. He wasn't the lone wolf.

    Besides you have such a strong case here and culprit accepts his crimes in open. You don't need to do much to expose Indian state terrorism in Pakistan. So let the show go on.

    Highlight, that new trial new punishment, separate from the ICJ case which makes it easier to hang him on different charges.

    I know he confessed but it that all you have to go by??

    Where are all the details about his involvement in terrorism ?? Who did he work with in Pakistan?? Who are his accomplices?? What kind of arms and ammunition he possessed?? How many times did he cross the border into Pakistan??

    How come none of the details are revealed except his passport?? Is that all you have in evidentiary support to hang him??

    • The Pakistan government, the official said, has repeatedly sought access to 13 Indian officials
    Now Pakistan will get details and public names of Indian Govt officials who were involved.

    What a farce it has become. We were told he was convicted for all the terror in Pakistan and not just being a spy. Now he is tried again and that too after expiry of his supposed execution date.

    Last trial - no one knows who his defence lawyer was. So looks like another farce.
