India Files Second Round of Pleadings in Kulbhushan Jadhav Case

Published on 18 Apr 2018 by Shivi

India has filed the second round of pleadings to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at its headquarters in Hague regarding Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case. Jadhav was sentenced to death penalty by a Pakistan military court on alleged espionage charges.

The External Affairs Ministry of India stated that India submitted its reply with the ICJ in Kulbhushan Yadav’s case keeping up with the order of the International Court passed on January 17, 2018.

The matter was first raised by India on May 8, 2017, against Pakistan for violating the provisions of Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

The International Court passed an order asking Pakistan to not carry out the sentence awarded to Jadhav on espionage charges.

India has filed the reply to Pakistan’s submissions in the court. The ICJ has given Islamabad a deadline of July 17, 2018, to file its response.

India has kept its stance on the matter that the decision by the Pakistan court was ‘farcical’ and Kulbhushan Yadav, 47, was kidnapped from Iran. However, Pakistan maintains that its security forces arrested Kulbhushan Jadhav from Balochistan province on March 3, 2016, after he allegedly entered the province from Iran.
