Pak to comply with ICJ order, civilian court to hear Jadhav’s plea: Sources

Agency News

The Imran Khan government in Pakistan may soon modify its Army Act to allow Kulbhushan Jadhav to appeal against his conviction before a civilian court, top sources who are in the know of things said.

The Pakistan government will be making amendments in the Army Act and let Kulbashan Jadhav appeal against his conviction in a civilian Court, India Today reported quoting top sources privy to the development.

Kulbhushan Jadhav was convicted by a military court in Pakistan and sentenced to death on charges of espionage. Pakistan has claimed that Kulbhushan Jadhav was "arrested" from Balochistan by its security forces on March 3, 2016.

Rejecting this news, India has always maintained that Kulbhushan Jadhav was kidnapped by Pakistan's security forces when he was in Iran on a business trip.
