Following the announcement of death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav, recognised as a former Navy Officer by the Indian government, over alleged espionage charges, voices in the nation have come together to condemn the death sentence given by a Pakistani military court.

On Friday, Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad Gautam Bambawale had met Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua and demanded a certified copy of the chargesheet as well as the army court order in the Mr Jadhav's case, besides seeking consular access to the retired Indian navy officer.

Not a shred of evidence no formal trial yet Jadhav was sentence to death.

He alleged that Jadhav, caught on anti-state activities, was trialed under court martial.

Pakistan has denied India's request for consular access to Jadhav over a dozen times in the last one year.

New Delhi has warned that if Jadhav was hanged, it would amount to "premeditated murder".

"It was duty of the army (to apprehend and punish him)".

"From my point of view, an exchange of prisoners is possibly the only way we can sort it (the issue) out", Narayanan told IANS here.

Jadhav's death sentence process will move ahead in the applet court and the army shall wait for the verdict, said Asif Ghafoor.

The spokesman said the convict can also file an appeal to the Supreme Court and the president of Pakistan.

Asserting that Jadhav was sentenced on undeniable evidence, Major General Ghafoor said the Pakistan Army will defend their case with all resources in light of the undeniable evidence if questioned on any of the forum.

Pakistan claims its security forces had arrested Mr Jadhav from Balochistan on March 3 a year ago and alleged that he was "a serving officer in the Indian Navy".

Ex-servicemen shout slogans in Patna against Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif demanding release of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
