Pakistan’s foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz had alleged that he was involved in “subversive and terrorist activities in Pakistan”.

In March last year, Islambad released what it claimed was a video confession of Mr Jadhav and said he revealed how India engineers violence and separatism in the restive province of Balochistan.
