The Lahore High Court Bar Association said on Friday that it will take action against any lawyer who extends his services to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death+ by a Pakistani military court.
“The LHBA has unanimously decided to cancel the membership of any lawyer who offers his services to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav,” Lahore High Court Bar Association secretary-general Amer Saeed Raan said after a meeting of the bar on Friday.
He said the bar has asked the government not to bow to any foreign pressure in the case of Jadhav+ .
“India has declared Jadhav its son and is putting pressure on the Pakistani government for his release. We demand that the Indian spy who is involved in playing with lives of Pakistanis should not be spared and the government (should) ensure his hanging,” he said.
Meanwhile, Indian high commissioner in Islamabad Gautam Bambawale will be meeting Pakistan foreign secretary Tehmina Janjua in connection with the case of Jadhav.
