Pak gives RAW wound, arrests 3 Indian 'spies'

A delegation from Pakistan led by its Maritime Security Agency (MSA) was to visit New Delhi April 16-19 to discuss issues related to the frequent arrests of fishermen transgressing maritime borders.

A day after Pakistan's military court pronounced a death sentence to former Indian Navy officer Kulbushan S Jadhav, India warned the neighbor country of consequences to bilateral ties if they proceed further.

Pakistan on Saturday claimed that three agents of India's Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) have been arrested in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

The arrested men crossed the Line of Control several times to attend meetings with the Indian Army and RAW officers regarding potential targets, police said. they are also accused of a bomb blast in Abbaspur a year ago.

As per sources, Ministry of defence has not given clearance for the delegation's visit.

Media reports in Pakistan said that three Indian agents and a man known to be the mastermind behind the Abbaspur bomb blast were arrested during a search operation.

Earlier on Thursday afternoon, the fire broke out in an area used to store state-owned construction materials and equipment. Things won't get back to normal for months, said Russell McMurry, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The talks between the Indian Coast Guard and Pakistan's Maritime Security Agency has been a routine exercise since 2005. Pakistan proposed talks in April-end.

"I have asked for a certified copy of the charge-sheet as well as the judgement in the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav". There he came in contact with RAW which "lured him to work for them".

During preliminary investigations, according to the police, Khalil told investigators that he had crossed the Line of Control (LoC) about 14 or 15 times from different parts in Abbaspur sector.

To a query, he said the United Nations and the U.S. have expressed their desire to play a role for resolution of all disputes between the two countries including the core issue of Jammu and Kashmir. Iran has said that the Taliban kidnapped him and took him to Pakistan.

The development came amid tension between the two countries over Jadhav's death sentence and a day after India criticised Pakistan for not disclosing his location as well as not giving consular access to him as per global conventions, despite repeated requests. The Indian government reacted strongly to the development saying if the sentence were to be carried out it would be considered as "pre-meditated murder".
