Tensions between India and Pakistan flared with Pakistan on Tuesday justifying the death sentence awarded to alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and said it was capable of protecting itself against "external threats".

The Pakistani military on Monday said that Indian "spy" Kulbhushan Jadhav, arrested in Balochistan in March 2016, had been sentenced to death for "waging war" against the country. India retorted by saying that if Pakistan hanged Jadhav, a former Indian naval officer, it will be considered "a case of premeditated murder" by New Delhi, making this the latest friction point between the two perennially sparring neighbours.
