Pak lawyers warned against defending Jadhav

The duplicity of Pakistan has once again come out in the open when it wrongly arrested Kulbhushan Jadhav, a former Indian Navy official and sentenced him to death. All this was done even when there is no substantial proof of him being engaged in any anti-Pakistan activity. If this was not enough, the Lahore Bar Association has decided to cancel the membership of any lawyer who takes up the case of defending Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Kulbhushan has been sentenced to death by a Pakistan Military court and the whole country is now defending this illogical decision of Pakistan Army which holds the might in the country. The Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan Gautam Bambawale is all set to meet Pakistan foreign secretary Tehmina Janjua in connection with this case.

He is expected to raise the issue of consular access TO Kulbhushan Jadhav in this case. Consular access to him has been denied repeatedly though Indian made a request to this effect around 13 times last year. India is also exploring other legal options including Jadhav’s family appealing against this verdict. India has already said that if Pakistan goes ahead with this verdict, it will be considered as a premeditated murder and relations between both nations will suffer.
