"We are yet to receive the chargesheet and the copy of the judgment on Jadhav's sentence," said a source in the Ministry of External Affairs.

Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale met Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua in Islamabad with a request for consular access to Jadhav and also sought a copy of the chargesheet against him.

The request for meeting Jadhav was turned down. "We demanded a meeting (with Jadhav), but they denied," Bambawale told reporters after meeting Janjua.

India said it has sought consular access to Jadhav 13 times earlier, but the permission was refused each time.

Jadhav, sentenced to death by Pakistan's military court on April 10, faced seven charges, including sponsoring IED attacks on important installations and attacks on Shias in Pakistan: According to the list read out by the country's foreign policy chief Sartaj Aziz on Friday.

As a fallout of the case, India on Saturday called off bilateral maritime security talks with Pakistan scheduled for 17 April.
