With the International Court of Justice (ICJ) hearing underway over the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by Pakistan on charges of being an Indian spy, Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir on Monday said that India will make sure he is not sentenced to death.
"I am sure he will get justice. We will make sure he is not sentenced to death. We will fight for his justice," he added.
Last month, a Pakistani military court awarded death sentence to former Indian Navy official for alleged espionage and subversive activities.
India denied that he has any connection with the government and charged that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was involved in business activities after retiring from the Indian Navy.
However, Pakistan claimed to have arrested him from Balochistan on March 3, 2016.
