In the case of Indian citizen Kulbhushan Jadhav, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) will be a public hearing on Monday, in which India and Pakistan will present their arguments before the United Nations Supreme Court.
It is believed that the impact of the Pulwama attack is on hearing and India can have a diplomatic victory in the ICJ. Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav (also spelled Kulbhushan Yadav, alleged alias Hussain Mubarak Patel) (born 16 April 1970) is an Indian national.
It is alleged by the Pakistani government that he was arrested in the Pakistani province of Balochistan on charges of terrorism and spying for India’s intelligence agency,
The Research and Analysis Wing. On 10 April 2017, Indian foreign ministry said he had been “kidnapped last year from Iran and his subsequent presence in Pakistan has never been explained credibly”.
According to the Pakistani government, on 3 March 2016, Jadhav was arrested inside Balochistan in Mashkel near the border region of Chaman.
He was arrested during a counterintelligence raid conducted by security forces. India denied the claim and said he was abducted from Iran.
According to Indian sources, Jadhav was abducted by Pakistan’s forces from the Iran–Pakistan border and Pakistan fabricated his documents and leaked them without realizing there were glaring inconsistencies in the same.
According to sections of Indian media, the Sunni group Jaish ul-Adl is responsible for the kidnapping of Jadhav from the Iran–Pakistan border.
