The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has reserved verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case following final arguments from India and Pakistan. The ICJ will announce the verdict on the date finalised by both the parties. Pakistan presented its final arguments in Kulbhushan Jadhav case in ICJ on the fourth day of public hearing being held at The Hague.
Laywer representing Pakistan, English Queen’s Counsel Khawar Qureshi, maintained that India has yet not responded to their arguments. “Many lives have been lost due to India’s interference and malicious acts. Jadhav worked for RAW – he was sent to incite militancy in Gwadar, Karachi. He confessed before a magistrate that he was involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan. India is funding terrorist-elements against Pakistan.” “I challenge India to point out any error in the facts mentioned in British report. India says that the case is merely limited to consular access but it fails to explain how a spy can be given that facility,” said Pakistan’s counselor Qureshi.
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’.
