From past few days we are continuously getting news about Kulbhushan Yadav, which is accused of being a RAW agent who was conducting espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan and was in contact with Baloch separatists and terrorists for fuelling terrorist activities. He was captured by security forces on 3rd March 2016 through a counter-intelligence operation in Balochistan for making an illegal entry into Pakistan via Iran. They also telecasted a video of him in which he accepts all charges on him and states that he was working in the Indian navy as a commander and was confronted by RAW for conducting espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan.
Kulbhushan Yadav was born on 16th April 1970 in Maharashtra and joined National Defence Academy in 1987 and was commissioned in Indian navy in 1991. He was a having a small business of scrap dealing in Iran before getting abducted by Pakistan’s forces from Iran-Pakistan border and Pakistan had fabricated his documents and leaked them without realising glaring inconsistencies in the same.
By going through various newspapers it is seen that Pakistan is trying hard to prove that he’s a secret spy from India which is needed to be killed for the safety of their people and they won’t tolerate these kind of activities against their country, and sentencing of Kulbhushan Yadav is a warning for other countries who are engaged in terrorism in Pakistan. But the main thing is that there is no strong evidence that support their accusation of Kulbhushan Yadav, as no agent is sent with their original ID adding that the confession video released by ISPR (Inter-Service Public Relations) of Pakistan is a doctored one according to intelligence reports accessed by India Today. And Pakistani authorities are also not providing consular access to Kulbhushan Yadav which clearly proves that this case have no feet on the ground and is totally considered as ‘farcical’ and ‘hasty’.
Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj is calling it a ‘premeditated murder’ as it is clearly seen that they are faking it which puts a hold on the release of several Pakistani prisoners. She also quoted that “India will go out of its way to save Kulbhushan Yadav”. She also issued a warning to Pakistan by saying, “I would caution the Pakistani government to consider the consequences for our bilateral relationship if they proceed on this matter”. She also told the Rajya Sabha that “Our position is very clear, there is no evidence of wrong doing by Kulbhushan Yadav”. This case got absurd when former Pakistani NSA (National Security Advisor) Sartaj Aziz quoted before Pakistani Senate that there was “insufficient” evidence to prove terror charges against Yadav. He also said that the dossier on Yadav contained “mere statements” and lacked any “conclusive evidence”. He had called for more “matter” on the “spy”.
From the recent columns of The Nav Bharat Times it is being said that the reason behind the death sentence of Kulbhushan Yadav could be the missing report of retired Pakistani Lieutenant colonel Mohammad Habib Zaheer from India-Nepal Border. Indian Express has told through their news that Habib was the member of the special team which last year kidnapped Kulbhushan Yadav, And Indian Secret Agencies were after him since that and there could be a possible connection between them. It is being said that when Pakistan came to know that Habib is in Indian custody they hastily announced death sentence of Kulbhushan Yadav without alarming Indian government.
Kulbhushan’s family members told The Indian Express last year that he carried necessary documents whenever he travelled and that they suspect he was “framed as part of a larger political conspiracy”. Kulbhushan Yadav, a resident of Mumbai’s Hiranandani Gardens, belongs to a family of police officers. Kulbhushan’s father Sudhir Yadav retired as an Assistant Commissioner of Police in Mumbai nine years ago and his uncle Subhas Yadav was in charge of Bandra police station in 2002, said The Indian Express report.
So after going through all of the information above gathered from India Today, Dawn, Geo News, Hindustan Times, Wikipedia, Nav Bharat Times, BBC, News18, CNN, Daily Mirror and The Times Of India.
We can conclude that Kulbhushan Yadav is a RAW agent and was a former Naval Officer and all of this was planned under a huge political conspiracy cause recently US military dropped 21,600-pound bomb under GBU-43/B MOAB on ISIS network of tunnels in Afghanistan near Pakistan border and it is said to be a warning for North Korea. If it goes like this then we’ll be seeing World War 3 in the Near Future.
