“INDIA WILL MAKE SURE JADHAV NOT HANGED” : SAYS MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

With the International Court of Justice (ICJ) hearing underway over the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by Pakistan on charges of being an Indian spy, Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir  said that India will make sure he is not sentenced to death.  Expressing confidence over the matter, Ahir told ANI that India have put forward their views in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).  “I am sure he will get justice. We will make sure he is not sentenced to death. We will fight for his justice,” he added.  The ICJ, which is the UN’s principal judicial organ, is holding a public hearing where India and Pakistan will be asked to present their case over the Jadhav issue. Last month, a Pakistani military court awarded death sentence to former Indian Navy official for alleged espionage and subversive activities.  India denied that he has any connection with the government and charged that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was involved in business activities after retiring from the Indian Navy.
