As the International Court of Justice (ICJ) will on Wednesday resume hearing in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) expressed hope for early release of the former Indian naval officer.
"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," he said.
BJP leader Rahul Sinha also expressed hope for justice in the matter.
The International Court of Justice will on Wednesday resume hearing in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, who was sentenced to death by a court in Pakistan earlier this year on charges of being an Indian spy.
India challenged the verdict in the UN top court, which on May 18 asked Pakistan to not execute Jadhav before they decide the case.
Both India and Pakistan will make their submissions before the ICJ.
