Jadhav, whose execution has been suspended recently by International Court of Justice (ICJ), can move the Supreme Court of Pakistan against the decision or file an appeal to President Mamnoon Hussain and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

The ICJ also directed that consular should be given access to Kulbhushan Jadhav under Vienna Convention.

Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, through a counter-intelligence operation in Balochistan’s Mashkel area for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan.

Soon after his arrest, Pakistan Army released a video in which he was shown confessing to his involvement in spying for Indian agency RAW.

On the other hand, India has denied Jadhav was a spy, and accused Pakistan of “egregious violations of the Vienna convention” for not giving access to the detainee through a legal counsel.
