Pakistan will respond to India’s arguments in the case pertaining to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) today (Feb 19) as ICJ adjourned hearing after the Indian side presented its arguments. The ICJ will resume the hearing in The Hague, allowing both India and Pakistan the opportunity to present their arguments in the case.
Earlier, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi asserted that a legal team would present Pakistan’s stance in the case and that Jadhav had already “confessed of committing terrorism in Pakistan.” Pakistan has also presented string evidences against Jadhav.
On 3 March 2016, Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested in the Balochistan province of Pakistan, having illegally and clandestinely entered Pakistan from Iranian territory. India has said that Commander Jadhav was “kidnapped” from Iran – but has provided no substantive evidence underpinning such an allegation. Commander Jadhav was carrying an Indian passport in the name of ‘Hussein Mubarak Patel’.
