The ICJ or International Court of Justice at the Hague, which heard arguments in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case from both India and Pakistan, has begun reading out the order and will deliver its verdict shortly. Kulbhushan Jadhav, a former Indian naval officer, has been sentenced to death by a military court in Pakistan over alleged espionage in Balochistan. New Delhi said that Pakistan has violated the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by denying Mr Jadhav, 47, access to legal and other assistance from India, and that Pakistan should be ordered to stop his execution. Arguing that the top UN court doesn't have jurisdiction in the matter, Pakistan responded to India's appeal by telling the UN court that it should decline jurisdiction in the case. Pakistan has claimed that Mr Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 in the restive province of Balochistan. India says he was kidnapped from Iran. There has been a long-running conflict in Balochistan between Pakistani security forces and a militant separatist movement.
