According to Pakistani officials, Jadhav was arrested inside Balochistan on 3 March 2016 as a serving agent of RAW (India's external intelligence agency). They believed that he was helping Baloch separatist group for subversive activities in Balochistan and Karachi and waging war against the country. Although India accepted that Jadhav served Indian navy but denied any connection to him with India's external intelligence agency. Also, Indian government stated that he was Indian navy officer but retired prematurely. 

According to Indian officials, Kulbhushan Jadhav was abducted by Pakistan from Iran where he was running a cargo business and had been working near Chabahar. From there he was kidnapped and lured into Pakistan by ISI (Pakistan's external intelligence agency) and fake documents were created showing him a RAW agent.

A video of Kulbhushan Jadhav has been released by Pakistani officials claiming as a confession of him for spying as RAW (India's intelligence agency) agent in Pakistan. Where it has been shown that Kulbhushan Jadhav confessing about his connection of RAW.
According to Times Now "The video is in fact doctored. And, After analyzing by Times Now it has been found 102 cuts in just 358 second of the video".

Now to the point, What would happen if Kulbhushan Jadhav belongs to the US?

On 27 Jan 2011, there was a very famous incident happened in Lahore, Pakistan. The incident led to a diplomatic furor and deterioration in Pakistan–United States relations.

Raymond Allen Davis, a former US soldier and CIA contractor Davis killed two men in Lahore. According to his written statement, he was coming from embassy driving alone in his car. While stopping at the traffic light near Qurtaba Chowk two men pulled alongside him on a motorbike attempting armed robbery. Davis opened fire and killed both of them. The incident led him to be imprisoned and a lengthy diplomatic stand-off between the two countries 


After the accident, he got arrested and investigations started by the police. But, the government of Pakistan was under extreme pressure from the United States to release Davis.

According to BBC,  about 18 family members of the two dead men confirmed to the court that they wanted Mr. Davis to be freed and pardoned because they had received "blood money".
The Pakistani media reported that the families received 200 million rupees ($2.34m, £1.1m) as "blood money".

According to the principle of Sharia (Islamic law in Pakistan), charges were dropped and Davis was released after payment to the families of the two people he had shot.

Suddenly after release, he fled away to his hometown in the United States.

Think of it, 

'A murderer of two persons'  been freed by just paying blood money and 'a person with no valid charge against him'  has been sentenced to death by the judiciary of Pakistan.
