Opposition Should Not Politicise Kulbhushan Jadhav Issue: AGP


ISLAMABAD: Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Khalid Javed Khan has asked the opposition parties to refrain from politicising the Kulbhushan Jadhav issue.

In a joint sitting of Parliament , a bill was passed to grant Kulbhushan Jadhav — a 50-year-Indian spy — the right to appeal as per the decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Khalid Javed said that Indian attempts to isolate Pakistan have failed as New Delhi was planning to take the matter to the ICJ and the UNSC.

The AGP said Kulbhushan Jadhav is an Indian spy and murderer of Pakistanis, but the legislation allowing Jadhav to appeal against his sentence has been done in the line with the ICJ’s ruling.

I’m ready to brief opposition parties if they want, AGP Khalid Javed Khan said and urged the opposition not to politicize the issue.

Pakistani security agencies on March 24, 2016 apprehended an ‘on-duty RAW agent’ from Balochistan. The suspect was said to be an officer of the Indian navy working for the covert agency to destabilize Pakistan.
