Convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav is now undergoing trial on terrorism and sabotage charges, local media reported on Tuesday.

The report also says that Islamabad has sought cooperation from the Indian government on multiple occasions.

The Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent was found guilty of conducting espionage activities in the country.

Ignoring all evidence, India, however, maintains he was kidnapped from Iran last year.

The trial against Jadhav was conducted under the Pakistan Army Act 1952 and Official Secret Act of 1923.

Pakistan had in December arranged a “family reunion” for Kulbushan Jadhav.

The mother and wife, Avanti Jadhav and Chetenkul Jadhav, were not allowed any physical contact due to security concerns.

They sat across, divided by a glass barrier, and spoke initially for 35 minutes, which was later extended to 40 minutes upon Jadhav’s request.

The meeting took place at the foreign ministry and the “guests” were given VVIP protocol, which invited criticism from Pakistanis who see Jadhav as the killer of several innocent people.

The foreign ministry also issued a video clip where Jadhav thanked the Government of Pakistan for arranging the meeting with his family.

Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal said Pakistan was in no hurry to execute Jadhav as he still had his mercy appeal pending before the army chief, Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa.

“Even if the army chief rejects his appeal, he can still file another appeal to the President [Mamnoon Hussain],” he said.
