LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) on Friday warned the lawyers against accepting brief of convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

LHCBA secretary Amir Saeed Rawn said it had decided to take action, including cancellation of membership, against the lawyer(s) found pursuing appeal of Jadhav against his conviction by a military court. He said India had been calling Jadhav its son and pressurising Pakistan government for his release.

Mr Rawn said the lawyers would not allow release of Jadhav who had been found guilty of playing with the lives of innocent people in Pakistan.
