*ISLAMABAD - Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia has been granted consular access to Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav in Islamabad today (Monday). The meeting is currently under way.*
Pakistan is granting India consular access as part of its implementation of the International Court of Justice’s July 17 verdict. It asked Pakistan to review the spy’s death sentence and grant India consular access by the “means of its own choosing”.
Jadhav, a commander of the Indian Navy associated with the country’s spy agency Research and Analysis Wing, was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan on allegations of espionage and terrorism.
He was subsequently sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court after he confessed to his involvement in terrorist plots. But India challenged his sentence in the ICJ.
