Jadhav's family leave Mumbai home

The family of Mumbai businessman and former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of spying, has left for an unknown destination. The family had been avoiding the media for the last two days.

Jadhav’s Mumbai-based friends are contemplating starting an online campaign against Pakistan and demanding secured and safe release of Kulbhushan Jadhav.

The family and extended family of the 46-year-old ex-officer are based in Mumbai and its suburbs. The Sangli-born man had joined the National Defence Academy in 1987 and worked for the Indian Navy for 12 years before retiring and starting his own business. The Pakistani military court claimed he was an agent of Research & Analysis Wing (RAW), the external intelligence agency of India.

His childhood friend, Subroto Deb Mukherjee, said that the news from Pakistan came as a shock to him and his friends. “We were expecting some other news,” he said.
