Kulbhushan Jadhav sentenced to death: Subramanian Swamy says Pak should be ready for consequences

New Delhi: India should prepare for taking "stringent action" against Pakistan and warn it of negative consequences if Kulbhushan Jadhav is executed, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said on Tuesday. "We should prepare to take stringent action against Pakistan. Today, we should give warning that consequences would be bad for Pakistan if Jadhav is executed," Swamy told reporters outside the Parliament.

He said India should discard the "wrong perception" that an India-Pakistan friendship is necessary to have Hindu-Muslim unity in the country. Swamy comments came in reaction to the Pakistan army chief approving the execution of Jadhav for his "involvement in espionage and sabotage activities" in that country. Pakistan security officials had "arrested" Jadhav on 3 March in 2016 in Balochistan after he reportedly entered from Iran.

Pakistan has alleged that Jadhav was a serving officer in the Indian Navy and deputed to the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW). India has acknowledged Jadhav as a retired Indian Navy officer, but denied the allegation that he was in any way connected to the government.
