Is the Pakistan Army eliminating evidence of its misdeeds that led to the incarceration of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav?

An indication on this came after the Pakistan Army shot dead a terrorist who once worked for them and reportedly kidnapped Kulbushan Jadhav from Iran for them.

Mulla Omar, a wanted sectarian terrorist, was killed along with his two sons in Balochistan's Turbat by Pakistani forces in an alleged encounter.

The killing comes weeks after Pakistan -- which was looking to avoid sanctions from United Nations Security Council -- decided to approve the bill for review of Kulbhushan Jadhav's conviction. The Pakistani ordinance allowed Jadhav to file an appeal against his conviction in a high court.

Islamabad High Court's three-judge bench is currently hearing a petition filed by the law ministry seeking the appointment of a lawyer for Jadhav to file a review plea against his death sentence by a Pakistani military court.

Pakistan claims that Jadhav was arrested from Balochistan in 2016 on charges of espionage. India has rejected Pakistan's allegations and said he was kidnapped from the Iranian port of Chabahar. In early 2017, a Pakistani military court sentenced him to death.

In 2017, India approached the International Court of Justice against Pakistan for denial of consular access to Jadhav and challenging the death sentence handed to him by a military court.

The ICJ had upheld India's claim on grievous violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by the Pakistan government on several counts.
