Pakistan has recently claimed that alleged Indian spy and former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav has made a mercy plea before the country's Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and have released a second 'confessional video' featuring Jadhav, dated April 2017.
However, in the video, Jadhav seems to have sustained minor injuries, including a mark close to his forehead, raising doubts on how genuine the 'confession' is and if he made the video under duress.

[caption id="attachment_174161" align="aligncenter" width="700"] A producer with Hindi television channel Zee News today quit the organisation protesting against the coverage of the JNU row by the channel.[/caption]
A producer with Hindi television channel Zee News on Saturday quit the organisation protesting against the coverage of the JNU row by the channel.
Vishwa Deepak, a producer, said in his resignation letter, also shared on social media, "We journalists often question others but never ourselves. We fix others' responsibilities but never ours. We are called as the fourth pillar of the democracy but are we, our organisations, our thoughts and our actions really democratic?
Taking to Facebook, Deepak wrote

"This is not just my question but everybody else's too. The way JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was framed on the pretext of nationalism and declared a traitor through media trial, this came as a very dangerous trend," he said.
"Dear Zee News, after 1 year four months and four days, the time has come that I should part ways with you. I should have taken this decision earlier, but if I don't do it now, I won't be able to forgive myself," Deepak said in his four-paged resignation letter.
Further, he has claimed that he has had objections to the way the channel has played up the JNU issue.
Zee News editor Sudhir Chaudhary when contacted said that it is organisation's internal matter.
"Zee media is one of the largest media houses in the country. People leaving and recruitments being done is a normal affair. In any case the person concerned was not involved in any stories related to the JNU row. He never discussed any issues with anybody in the organisation if he had any. His resignation is an internal matter of the organisation," he said.
"Zee media runs 10 national and regional news channels and its newsroom adheres to the highest journalistic standards. Our systems are completely transparent and stringent not to permit any specific viewpoint to domimnate any news broadcast beyond editorial merit," Chaudhary said.
