ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday announced to grant consular access to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, in pursuance of the decision by the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

“As a responsible state, Pakistan will grant consular access to Commander Kulbushan Jadhav according to Pakistani laws, for which modalities are being worked out,” the Foreign Office spokesperson said in a statement.

Commander Kulbushan Jadhav has been informed of his rights under Article 36, Paragraph 1(b) of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

 Jadhav was apprehended on March 3, 2016 in a counter-intelligence operation from the Balochistan province.

A military court had given him death sentence on April 10, 2017 on charges of espionage following his confession on operating for India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to conduct terrorist activities on the Pakistani soil.
