Pak’s NaPak decision

"Mr Jadhav was kidnapped last year from Iran and his subsequent presence in Pakistan has never been explained credibly," said India, adding that its officials had sought consular access to him 13 times between 25 March 2016 and 31 March 2017 but Pakistan never granted it.

Pakistan has no credible evidence against Mr Jadhav and did not even inform India when he was brought to trial, New Delhi asserted. "Senior Pakistani figures have themselves cast doubt about the adequacy of evidence. The claim in the (Pakistan) release that Mr Jadhav was provided with a defending officer during the so-called trial is clearly absurd in the circumstances," it said.

Government sources have said that Mr Jadhav was a businessman who often carried cargo to and from Iranian ports bordering Pakistan and had nothing to do with RAW or the Research and Analysis Wing. @pgurus
