An Indian national was arrested in Islamabad, allegedly over incomplete travel documents, news agency ANI reported on Sunday. The Indian national, whose name has not been disclosed, was arrested from the F-8 area of Pakistan’s capital for not having complete travel documentation, Samaa TV reported. A case has been filed under Article 14 of the Foreign Act and the man has been transferred to jail on judicial remand.
The arrest comes days after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) stayed the death sentence awarded to former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and subversive acts. India had asserted that Jadhav was arrested from Iran, where he had been conducting business, while Pakistan claimed to have arrested him from the restive Balochistan province for anti-national activities.
