Pakistan's powerful Army Chief on Monday approved the execution of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav after a military court found him guilty of "involvement in espionage and sabotage activities" against the country, a development that could further strain the India-Pakistan ties.

The death sentence to Jadhav, 46, was confirmed by Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa after the Field General Court Martial (FGCM) found him guilty of "all the charges", said the military's media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

“The spy has been tried through Field General Court Martial under Pakistan Army Act and awarded death sentence,” it said, and added that the FGCM found Jadhav “guilty of all the charges.”

The sudden sentencing wasn’t received well by the Indian media and people came out on Twitter to voice their opinions on it.
