IANS  |  The Hague 

The International of Justice will announce its verdict on Thursday on India's appeal against the death sentence awarded by a Pakistani to alleged spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

The verdict is set to be announced at 3.30 p.m. IST.

The verdict comes after and Pakistan clashed on Monday at the ICJ over Jadhav with New Delhi invoking the court's jurisdiction to see that the death sentence against him is annulled immediately.

Pakistan has said that had no right to invoke the jurisdiction of the because the Vienna Convention does not provide for matters relating to spies, terrorists and those who indulge in espionage.
