India’s attorney Harish Salve told the International Court of Justice (ICJ) today that the country fears that Kulbhushan Jadhav could be executed by Pakistan before its arguments are heard.
Mr Salve said, the Indian national, who was arrested on March 3 last year and sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on allegations of espionage and subversive activities, had been framed on the basis of confessional statements extracted from him when he was in Pakistan’s military custody.
New Delhi has called for immediate suspension of Jadhav’s death sentence and accused Pakistan of violating the Vienna convention by denying its 16 requests for consular access.
As the Hague-based ICJ began hearing Jadhav’s case, India argued that human rights treated as basics all over had been thrown to the wind by Pakistan. India told the UN’s main judicial body that it wants appropriate legal representation for Jadhav.
