Govt to spare no efforts to ensure fair justice to Jadav: Rajnath
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that the Centre will spare that no efforts to ensure a fair justice to the former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadav, who is languishing in a Pakistani jail after being given the death sentence by a Pakistani Military Court for alleged spying.
Singh also refuted Pakistan's claim of a fair trial being given to Jadhav and said all efforts were being made to secure justice for the Indian national.
"I do not agree with what Pakistan has said. Kulbhushan Jadhav did not get a fair trial," he told a press meet here on Friday.
"All efforts are being made to secure justice for Jadhav. We will do everything," he added.
Pakistan, earlier in the day, had said that the death sentence to Jadhav was based on ‘credible and specific’ evidence that proved his involvement in spying and terror activities and that a more active diplomacy was needed to arrest the ‘growing crises’ in the Indo-Pak ties.
Singh further said that India has always been in favour of cessation of all hostilities with Pakistan but if there is any attack from the other side, ‘India will give a befitting reply’.
He also said Indian security forces will never compromise on matters of national security.
