New Delhi: India has officially sought from Pakistan details of the trial proceedings against Kulbhushan Jadhav as well as the appeal process in the case, the external affairs ministry said yesterday.

Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said India has asked for consular access to Jadhav for the 15th time.

Pakistan is yet to heed to India's request for consular access to Jadhav who has been given death penalty by a Pakistani military court on charges of spying.

India awaits formal response from Pakistan to its two demands — consular access and details of the trial proceedings against Jadhav, said Baglay. "We don't know anything about Jadhav's location or condition in Pakistan."

On Wednesday, India had summoned the Pakistan deputy high commissioner in Delhi in connection with Jadhav's death sentence.
