Indian national arrested in Pakistan

Islamabad, May 21 (IBNS): An Indian national has been arrested by Pakistani authorities for allegedly not having proper travel documents, media reports said.

"According to details, he was arrested from F-8 area of Islamabad over possessing incomplete travel documents,"  Samaa reported.

A case has been filed against the Indian nation under  Article 14 of the country's Foreign Act.

He has been sent to jail, media reports said.

The news of the Indian national's came to light at a time when relationship between the neighbouring nations was hit hard over the death sentence given to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani court.

Meanwhile, after the International Court of Justice passed a stay order on Kulbhushan Jadhav's death sentence by a Pakistani military court, the country's army will now "jointly fight" the Indian national's case with its government at the court, media reports said.

This was reported by the Pakistan state radio, which quoted a top ruling politician.

"Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq says the government and Pakistan Army will jointly fight the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav" in the ICJ, reported Radio Pakistan quoting a speech the politician made on Saturday.

Pakistan had earlier said that ICJ has no jurisdiction in matters of national security.

Jadhav, a former navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court last month after being convicted of spying.

The Attorney General of Pakistan had even said that the order of ICJ does not change the status of Jadhav's case at all but they would come to a "logical end".

Handing out India a big diplomatic victory, International Court of Justice on Thursday stayed the execution of former Indian  Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, ordering Pakistan not to hang him pending a final decision.

"Pakistan should not execute Jadhav pending final proceedings. The decision to stay Kulbhushan Jadhav's execution pending ICJ hearing is unanimous," Judge Ronny Abraham, President of the Court, had said.

The court had asked Pakistan to take "all measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav is not executed till a final decision is taken.

The order comes ten days after India approached the UN's top court for "provisional measure" of protection -- an interim relief -- in the Jadhav case.
