ISLAMABAD  - India yesterday asked Pakistan to provide a copy of the charge sheet against convicted spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Gautam Bambawale met Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua here and discussed Jadhav’s case.

The Indian envoy demanded consular access to the convicted spy.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, the high commissioner said India had also sought a copy of the charge sheet filed against Jadhav.

Jadhav, the Research and Analysis Wing agent, was sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial in Pakistan this month.

Jadhav has the right of appeal within 40 days to an appellate court and he may lodge a mercy petition to the army chief within 60 days of the decision by the appellate court. 

He may also lodge a mercy petition to the President of Pakistan within 90 days after the decision of army chief on the mercy petition.

The RAW agent was found guilty of conducting espionage activities in the country by the FGCM. Ignoring all evidence, India, however, claims he was kidnapped from Iran last year.
