*ISLAMABAD:*

Islamabad High Court gives interim verdict over RAW agent Kulbhushan Jhadav case.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted on Thursday another opportunity to New Delhi and Kulbhushan Jadhav to clarify their stance on pursuing the case before the federal capital’s high court.

The direction came after the Attorney General for Pakistan (AGP) Khalid Javed Khan informed the IHC’s larger bench, comprising Chief Justice IHC Athar Minallah, Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzaib, that the Government of Pakistan has not yet received a reply from the Indian Government.

He added that Indian spy Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav has maintained that he does not want to take the benefit of the International Court of Justice (Review and Reconsideration) Ordinance, 2020, for an effective review of the case, and requested considering his mercy plea, already pending before the Pakistan Army chief.

When the case was taken up, the AGP said that it appears that the Indian government was not interested in availing the opportunity of legal representation and its "focus is on embarrassing Pakistan".
