After Jadhav Death Sentence, India Halts Release of Pak Prisoners
The court sentenced Jadhav to death for his alleged involvement in “espionage and other sabotage activities”.
- On Wednesday, India decided not to release about a dozen Pakistani prisoners who were to be repatriated on Wednesday, according to reports by PTI.
- The move came in response to a Pakistani Army Court verdict that came earlier that day, where they sentenced Indian ‘spy’ Kulbushan Jadav to death.
- India has summoned the Pakistani High Commissioner, and said that if the sentence is carried out without observing basic norms of law & justice, it'll be a case of 'premeditated murder'.
