International Court of Justice stays Kulbhushan Jadhavs death sentence

Tahlka News Bureau
New Delhi: International Court of Justice has stayed the hanging of Indian National Kulbhushan Jadhav sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of spying.

The order came a day after India approached by The Hague-based ICJ against the death sentence handed down to Jadhav by Pakistan's field general court martial in April, sources said.

India has accused Pakistan of violating the Vienna Convention and said Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was involved in business activities after retiring from the Indian Navy but Pakistan claimed to have arrested him from Balochistan on March 3, 2016.

This can be a diplomatic win for India and a huge blow to Pakistan. Pakistan had claimed that India was trying to create problems in their country.

"I have spoken to the mother of #KulbhushanJadhav and told her about the order of President, ICJ under Art 74 Paragraph 4 of Rules of Court." tweeted foreign minister Sushama Swaraj.
