At ICJ, Pakistan rejects India's plea for consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav


Last week, Islamabad said it would allow Mr. Jadhav's wife and mother to meet him on December 25. Pakistan alleges that Kulbhushan Jadhav was involved in terror-related activities and hence "evidence" to back that claim will be furnished which would also include the confessions of Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April 2017 on charges of espionage and terrorism evoking a sharp reaction in India.

Sources privy to development told that Pakistan's response is based on The Vienna Convention and country's ambassador in Holland has submit the reply.

Submitting counter memorial in the ICJ, Pakistan said that since India did not deny Jhadav was travelling with an assumed Muslim name, they have no case to plead.
