BJP chief Amit Shah today said India has heaved a sigh of relief following the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) decision to stay the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav who had been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court.
Welcoming the verdict, Shah said it would also come as a big relief for the former Navy officer's family as he hailed the Modi government's quick and effective measures on the matter.
In a statement, he also praised senior lawyer Harish Salve who was India's attorney at the Hague and argued the case before the global court.
Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military court in Pakistan for alleged espionage and subversive activities, following which India approached the ICJ.
