A year ago, on 3 March 2016, Pakistan counter-terrorism officials arrested an Indian man who they alleged was a spy working for the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). A year later, the alleged spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's secret trial and subsequent death sentence by a Pakistani military court shook India which was hoping another way out of his imprisonment.
Jadhav, a 1991 commissioned naval officer, was arrested in March 2016 by Pakistan authorities on the charges that he was dealing with Balochistan freedom fighters. The allegation was that Jadhav, who retired in 2013, was an active Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent, a charge denied by India. RAW is the primary foreign intelligence agency of India.
The Pakistani intelligence agency ISI's public relations department issued a statement confirming the news.
Here's a timeline of events recorded since the former Indian naval officer's arrest in March 2016.
