Pakistan on Friday dismissed India's request to appoint an Indian lawyer or Queen's counsel to represent Kulbhushan Jadhav, saying that New Delhi has been repeatedly making an "unrealistic demand." Jadhav, a retired Navy officer, is facing charges of espionage in Pakistan and was given a death sentence by a military court there. India is skeptical that Pakistan wouldn't give a fair trial to Jadhav.
