The Court had on 18 May 2017 indicated provisional measures as requested by India and passed an order obligating Pakistan to not carry out the sentence that was awarded to Indian national Shri Kulbushan Jadhav through a farcical trial by the Military Court of Pakistan.
As per the Court order, India had filed written pleadings (Memorial) in the case on 13 September 2017 and Pakistan filed its Counter Memorial on 13 December 2017. Today, India filed its Reply to Pakistan's submissions to the Court. Pakistan has been given time till 17 July 2018 by the Court to file its response ( Rejoinder).
India remains committed to make all possible efforts to secure and protect the rights of Shri Jadhav. [MEA India Press release]
