April 13, 2017

RAWALPINDI: The Corps Commanders at a meeting in Rawalpindi on Thursday expressed the resolve that no compromise will be made on anti-state acts. The meeting, chaired by Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, reviewed national security environment and recent developments in the region. It was also briefed about the RAW agent, Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav. Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad and process of ongoing national housing and population census also came under discussion. Participants of the meeting reviewed the national security environment and recent developments in the region as well as progress on Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad ? a nationwide operation aimed at eliminating the “residual/latent threat of terrorism”, which was launched in February after a deadly attack at a shrine in Sehwan. The COAS appreciated the formations, intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies for their successful execution of operations, ISPR said. Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, through a counter-intelligence operation in Balochistan’s Mashkel area for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan.

Jadhav was tried for espionage in a three-month long trial by the Field General Court Martial. He was convicted of the offences and awarded death sentence.

It should be mentioned here that since Jadhav has been awarded the sentence, a retired army colonel has gone missing in Nepal. Reportedly, Research and Analysis Wing of India whom Jadhav worked for is involved in the abduction to pressure the government in the issue.
