Maharashtra public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam on Sunday said serious consequences would follow Pakistan if it fails to adhere to the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) verdict on former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadahv's case.
"It is very difficult for Pakistan to disown that they are not bound by the ICJ order, otherwise very serious consequences will follow," Nikam told ANI.
Nikam said the ICJ had accepted Jadhav's case only after it found merit in India's contention that Pakistan deliberately violated Vienna convention by denying consular access to him.
"Two different timing slots have been allocated. One is given to India to present its details and another to Pakistan and only one day is given in the public hearing and I expect the ICJ will give its verdict only tomorrow," he added.
India, in its appeal before the ICJ, accused Pakistan of "egregious" violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
The plea stated that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran, where he was involved in business activities after retiring after retiring from the Indian navy, but Pakistan claimed he was arrested from Balochistan on March 3,2016.
