Who Is Kulbhushan Jadhav

Jadhav, an Indian national, was sentenced to death over allegations of espionage and terrorism by a military court in Pakistan. India approached the ICJ in May 2017, invoking its power under Article 74 of the Rules of the Court to grant provisional measures.

India has accused Pakistan of violating Article 36(1) of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, 1963, in that the latter failed to inform them of Jadhav’s detention until long after his arrest.

The Controversial Meet

The meeting between Jadhav and his wife and mother on December 25 became controversial after the treatment that was meted out to them by Pakistan. His wife and mother were forced to change clothes, remove bangles, bindi and mangalsutra before they could meet him, and the Pakistanis even confiscated his wife's footwear. In pictures from their meet, Jadhav appeared to have injuries to his head.
