India is liaising with Pakistan in ensuring the implementation of the International Court’s verdict in cases relating to Indian death row inmate Kulbhushan Jadhav, official sources said on Tuesday.
Jadhav, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April 2017. A few weeks later, India approached the ICJ against Pakistan for denial of consular access to Jadhav and opposed the death sentence.
In its ruling in the July 17 case last year, the ICJ ordered Pakistan to conduct an “effective” review of Jadhav’s sentence and sentence and asked him to give him consular access without further delay.
“We have been in contact with Pakistan through diplomatic channels regarding the implementation of the ICJ decision,” said the source.
In Pakistan which raised the Kashmir issue at the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) online summit on Monday, sources said Pakistan had carried out propaganda against India on this issue and the international community was aware of it.
“It is part of the propaganda that is thought through and we do not want to be dignified by commenting on it,” said a source.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in the NAM online summit, a group of 120 developing countries.
It was attended by more than 30 other Heads of State and governments and other leaders, including from member countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Europe.
