Four days after the Jaish-e-Mohammad attack on CRPF jawans in Pulwama, India and Pakistan will be face-to-face in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will hear from Monday for the death sentence awarded to former Indian Navy officer Jadhav. This hearing will last for four days.
Indian lawyer Harish Salve on Monday and Pakistani lawyer Khawar Qureshi will present arguments on Tuesday. After this, India will reply on February 20, while Islamabad will present its last arguments on February 21. The verdict in this case is expected this year.
Pakistan charged with spying
Pak soldiers captured Kulbhushan Jadhav from the Balochistan province in March 2016. They were accused of espionage in Afghanistan and the military court had pronounced their death sentence on April 10, 2017. To prevent this, India had knocked the ICJ door. After this, the court banned Jadhav in 2017. However, Pakistan has said that it will not change the punishment of Kulbhushan.
Demand for the punishment of Kulbhushan
India has already said that Kulbhushan Jadhav is not a detective. Rather, the Pak soldiers had kidnapped them from the Afghanistan border. India has appealed to the court that Pakistan should be ordered to repeal the sentence of Jadhav. India has alleged that Pakistan violated the Vienna Treaty and provided Counselor access to Kulbhushan and also violated human rights.
Jadhav’s family was also harassed
Kulbhushan’s family went to Pakistan in 2017 to meet him. Then his family was tortured. During the meeting Jadhav and family were under the supervision of CCTV and there was a glass wall between them.
