As the International Court of Justice (ICJ) began hearing Jadhav's case, India argued that human rights treated as "basics" all over had been thrown to the wind by Pakistan.
All requests for consular access to 46-year-old Jadhav had fallen on "deaf ears", it said.
The present situation, attorney Harish Salve said before the court, was grave and that is why India had sought ICJ's indulgence.
India may avail a "short extension" beyond 90 minutes to present its case, the judge had said in his opening remarks.
The next day, ICJ stayed the sentence.
India, in its appeal to the ICJ, has asserted that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was involved in business activities after retiring from the Indian Navy.
India acknowledges that Jadhav had served with the Navy but denies that he has any connection with the government.
