Pakistani Court Adjourns hearing on Kulbhushan Jadhav’s Case till October 5

According to the media reports, a Pakistani court has adjourned its hearing on India’s plea related to the appointment of counsel for death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav till October 5.

The court’s decision to adjourn the hearing on the plea comes after a request was made by the Attorney General for Pakistan Khalid Javed Khan.

In 2017, the 50-year-old retired Indian Navy officer was sentenced to death by a Pakistani Military court for espionage and terrorism.

India appealed to the International Court of Justice and challenged the death sentence when Kulbhushan Jadhav was denied access to consular help.

The Islamabad High Court adjourned the hearing on the government’s plea to appoint a consul for him till October 5 and issued a notice counsel of the Indian High Commission.

According to notice, the counsel of the Indian High Commission will have to appear before the court at the time of the next hearing.
