Pak Senate passes resolution seeking dossier on India's 'intervention in Balochistan'

Islamabad: Pakistan's Senate has unanimously adopted a resolution asking the government to prepare a dossier on "Indian interference" in the country and send it to other nations and international institutions.

The resolution moved in the Senate, the Upper House of the parliament, by ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party Senator Lt Gen (retd) Abdul Qayyum was passed on Monday.

According to a report in Express Tribune, the resolution calls on the Pakistan government to prepare "a full dossier about the Indian interference in Pakistan's internal affairs fomenting unrest, instability and terrorism."

It also calls for sending these dossiers to "key international countries and institutions."

The Senate's move comes more than two months after Pakistani authorities claimed to have arrested an alleged Indian spy in its restive Balochistan province on March 3.

Pakistan claims Kulbhushan Jadhav crossed over into the country from Iran. It has handed over evidence regarding Yadav's arrest to key world powers, including the US and the UK, but they have yet not responded.

Pakistan last month said it has briefed envoys of the Arab and Asean countries about Jadhav's alleged "confession about Indian sponsored subversive activities and terrorist financing to destabilise Pakistan".

India has acknowledged Jadhav as a retired Indian Navy officer, but denied the allegation that he was in any way connected to the government.
