The tribal areas in Pakistan’s western borderlands with Afghanistan have become a sanctuary for terror groups that mount attacks in Xinjiang China’s restive Muslim-majority province that borders the subcontinent Security officials in Xinjiang and Beijing are no longer confident that the Pakistan army can take care of China’s concerns on terrorism As the US withdraws from Afghanistan Beijing worries that there could be more turbulence in Pakistan which could worsen China’s internal security challenges China is no longer viewing the Af-Pak region through the eyes of the Pakistan army Beijing has begun to make its own assessments of the region and over the last year it has signalled an interest in promoting peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan It might be too early to affirm that China and Pakistan are at odds in Afghanistan but small cracks are appearing in the once-solid regional partnership between the two Might that open up an opportunity for India Until now Delhi had assumed that their shared hostility towards India meant that the alliance between Beijing and Rawalpindi was immutable Although the China-Pakistan alliance has been an enduring feature of our geopolitical landscape for many decades some change is inevitable as circumstances in the region evolve For Delhi the question is about judging the extent of the change and finding ways to transform India’s triangular relationship with Pakistan and China If Delhi is bold it can influence the evolution of that relationship in two ways For all the grand talk about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor there are many constraints on a China-led industrial transformation of Pakistan The experiences in Myanmar and Sri Lanka point to some of the problems associated with China’s silk road initiatives Meanwhile the potential for a sustainable economic partnership between India and China is much greater than that between Islamabad and Beijing The problem so far has been Delhi’s reluctance India is also in a much better position today to counter any new Chinese investments in its military alliance with Pakistan As India deepens ties with other major powers and takes a more active role in Asia and the Pacific Modi is in a position to credibly tell his Chinese interlocutors that the costs of Beijing’s alliance with Rawalpindi could soon exceed the benefits Xi’s visit to Pakistan then must spur Modi to imagine a robust and self-confident strategy towards China that opens India to an expansive bilateral and regional economic partnership Modi must also articulate India’s readiness to cooperate with China on regional security issues ranging from counter-terrorism to Afghanistan and the Indo-Pacific If India is the glue that binds the Sino-Pak alliance as many argue Delhi should have the capacity to weaken that bond through its own policies Over the last decade Delhi has managed to alter the triangular dynamic with Pakistan and America by expanding its partnership with Washington There might be similar possibilities awaiting Modi in Beijing The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation Delhi and a contributing editor for

45(1) of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, a person accused of an offence punishable for a term of three years imprisonment could be given bail only if the public prosecutor was given an opportunity to oppose the application for release.The provision also says that bail could be granted only if the court was satisfied that there were reasonable grounds for believing that the person is not guilty of such offence or that he is not likely to commit any offence while on bail The apex court set aside all orders by which bail to an accused was denied due to the twin conditions and directed that such cases be remanded back to the respective courts to be heard on merits The court while hearing a batch of petitions and appeals challenging the constitutional validity of Section 45 of the PMLA termed it as a "drastic provision" which turns on its head the presumption of innocence which is fundamental to a person accused of any offence It also said that before applying such a section which makes "drastic inroads" into the fundamental right of personal liberty under Article 21 "we must be doubly sure that such a provision furthers a compelling state interest for tackling serious crime" Without "any such compelling state interest the indiscriminate application of the provisions of Section 45 will certainly violate Article 21 of the Constitution "Provisions akin to Section 45 have only been upheld on the ground that there is a compelling state interest in tackling crimes of an extremely heinous nature" the court said It said that merely "reading down" the two conditions would not get rid of the "vice of manifest arbitrariness and discrimination" The apex court pointed to one of the anomalies in Section 45 and said that anticipatory bail could be granted to a person who is prosecuted for the offence of money laundering which may last throughout the trial of the case against him It said if the person is arrested for the offence ofmoney laundering then in order to seek regular bail Section 45 will apply which was an anomalous situation
