Islamabad: It is being speculated that Pakistan might refuse to accept the verdict given by the International Court of Justice (ICJ), putting the execution of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav on stay.

According to the official sources, "the Attorney General of Pakistan was briefed on Jadhav's case after the Hague-based ICJ stayed the execution and it was stated that Pakistan does not accept the international court's jurisdiction to order the state of Pakistan on issues that involve its national stability.

The execution of the 46-year-old Jadhav has been made by the Pakistani army on allegations of him being an Indian spy.

India, however, has accused Pakistan of 'egregious' violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, in its appeal to ICJ, and asserted that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was involved in business activities after retiring from the Indian Navy.

Pakistan claimed to have arrested him from Balochistan on March 3, 2016 and later the former navy officer was sentenced to death for 'espionage and subversive activities.'

India did acknowledge that Jadhav had served with the Navy but refuse to have any connection with him now. The Indian government has also handed over an appeal by Jadhav's mother, to the Pakistani government, initiating a process to get his conviction overturned.
