Kulbhushan to remain in Pakistan: Anwar Mansoor Khan


LAHORE: Attorney General of Pakistan Anwar Mansoor Khan on Thursday said Pakistan has proved Indian involvement in terrorist activities inside Pakistan.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ), in its verdict in Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case, rejected most of the remedies sought by India.

Talking to a private TV channel, the AGP termed the ICJ’s verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case as “a best one for Pakistan”.

Dubbing the decision as “a clear win for Pakistan”, Khan said Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav will remain in Pakistan’s custody.

He also felicitated the nation and the armed forces over the landmark decision in the case.

Yesterday, Attorney General of Pakistan Anwar Mansoor Khan had said, Pakistan’s stance on the matter has been very clear from the day one.

He was speaking to the media after the announcement of the verdict.

He had added the ICJ asked Pakistan to ensure review and reconsideration of the sentence handed down to Jadhav by a court of law in accordance with provisions of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR).

The court, in its verdict, rejected a number of Indian demands including annulment of military court decision convicting Jadhav, his release and safe passage to India.
