The hearing in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case today will be resumed by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on which the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) expressed hope for the early release of the former Indian naval officer.
The BJP leader S. Prakash while speaking to ANI Said "India will make every effort to see that Jadhav is released from Pakistan's illegal detention. He has been sentenced to death by the court of Pakistan without even a hearing and without providing an opportunity to him to put forth his point of view. However, the Indian effort to secure his freedom has delayed the judicial process in Pakistan, and I am sure in the coming hearing the Indian government will succeed in bringing back Jadhav to India,"
The BJP leader Rahul Sinha told ANI that "The court will take its decision. We should not comment on it. The matter is in the court and we hope that we will get justice,"
Kulbhushan Jadhav was sentenced to death by a court in Pakistan earlier this year on charges of being an Indian spy. In the UN top court, the India challenged the verdict which on May 18 asked Pakistan to not execute Jadhav before they decide the case.
