Kulbhushan is guilty of crimes against people of Pakistan: Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday welcomed the verdict by International Court of Justice (ICJ) not to acquit convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday morning, PM Khan said that Kulbhushan Jadhav was guilty of crimes against the people of Pakistan.
“Pakistan shall proceed as per law,” he added.
“Appreciate ICJ’s decision not to acquit, release & return Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav to India. He is guilty of crimes against the people of Pakistan. Pakistan shall proceed further as per law,” Khan tweeted.
His tweet came a day after the top UN court stayed Kulbhushan Jadhav’s execution and directed Pakistan to review his sentence.
The court, however, rejected the Indian pray to order his acquittal and repatriation to India.
Both the countries have claimed victory in the aftermath of the verdict.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also welcomed the ruling and hoped that justice would be done to Kulbhushan.
Jadhav, a serving Indian naval officer, was captured from Balochistan after he illegally crossed into Pakistan from Iran with forged travel documents having Muslim name. He was sentenced to death by military court on charges of terrorism and espionage.
