Kulbhushan Jadhav Case: India Must Approach International Court Of Justice, Says Petitioner

A Pakistani military court sentenced Indian man Kulbhushan Jadhav to death.

New Delhi:  A social activist today moved the Delhi High Court seeking a direction to the Centre to approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for release of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national on death row in
Pakistan. The Pakistan army, on Monday, denied consular access to Mr Jadhav. The country has reportedly prepared a prepared a new dossier on Mr Jadhav which they will share with the United Nations.

The petition sought direction to the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Home Affairs to approach the ICJ for providing consular access to Mr Jadhav, saying the former Navy man has not only been illegally detained by Pakistan but also wrongly awarded capital punishment.

Petitioner Rahul Sharma also said that the Pakistan military has failed to provide fair trial to Mr Jadhav.

On April 10, the Pakistan army chief had confirmed the death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav, 46, by a Pakistani military court.
