Pak Army spokesperson posts off-colour tweet on Jadhav

New Delhi: Pakistan Army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor, posted an odd tweet on his personal Twitter handle on Saturday.

He tweeted a picture of Bollywood actor Salman Khan, referring to him as “RAW agent in Bollywood” alongside a photo of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav captioning it as “RAW agent in Real”.

Ghafoor shared the picture of the actor from his 2012 film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in which he portrayed the role of a RAW agent.

Jadhav, an Indian national who has been lodged in a Pakistan jail, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April last year, after allegedly being arrested in Balochistan.

India has rubbished all allegations and charges laid down against Jadhav by Pakistan, maintaining that the former naval officer was reportedly kidnapped in Iran.

Subsequently, India approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on May 8, following which the ICJ passed an order obligating Islamabad not to carry out the death sentence awarded to Jadhav.

The proceedings regarding Jadhav’s case are ongoing in the ICJ, with a public hearing scheduled in February next year.
