Kulbhushan Jadhav case: ICJ rejected India’s appeal

Pakistan claimed that the International Court of Justice (ICJ) rejected India’s request for six months to file a plea in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case. Court ordered it to do so by September 13.

The international court told Pakistan it will have time until December 13 to file a reply, once India files its plea in September.

There has been no word from New Delhi about this development as of Friday morning.

Delegations from Pakistan and India met with the ICJ president June 8 to discuss the timeline of the case of the Indian national who was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court.

The ICJ ordered Pakistan on May 18 to halt the execution of Jadhav on a plea filed by India. The court stayed the execution pending a final decision on India’s case.

Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was arrested from Balochistan in March last year. On April 10, a Pakistani military court sentenced Jadhav to death for his “involvement in espionage and terrorist activities in Pakistan”. Pakistan said he was an agent for India’s intelligence agency the Research and Analysis Wing.
