Pervez Musharraf dubs Kulbhushan Jadhav as bigger terrorist than Ajmal Kasab
New Delhi : Ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf believes that Indian soldier Kulbhushan Jadhav is a bigger terrorist than Ajmal Kasab.
In an interview to a news channel, Musharraf claimed that Kasab, one of the 10 Pakistanis who carried out the Mumbai terror attacks in which 164 people were killed, was 'just a pawn', while Jadhav is fueling terrorism.
"Kasab was just a pawn but Jadhav was fueling terrorism and may have killed a number of people in sabotage activities," said the allegedly treasonous Musharraf to ARY news.
On the other hand, Pakistan on Friday filed a plea in the ICJ for it to rehear within six weeks the case of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, after the government was slammed by the opposition for "mishandling" the case at the world court.
Pakistan's Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz said Islamabad, with a new team of lawyers, will put forward its case vigorously in the International Court of Justice against letting off Jadhav on India's plea.
"Pakistan was set to re-challenge the jurisdiction of the ICJ after it granted injunction on Thursday on an Indian plea to stay Jadhav's execution," Dunya News reported.
According to law, Jadhav can challenge till the end of Saturday his death sentence in an appellate court. A military court sentenced him to death on April 10 on spying and terrorism charges.
