According to sources, the court will hear the case daily from February 19 to 25 next year.
Kulbhushan Jadhav , an on-duty Indian navy officer working for Indian covert agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan, after he entered into Pakistan from Iran.
He was tried in a military court which sentenced him to death for espionage and subversive activities.
The Indian side submitted its pleadings to the ICJ on September 13, 2017. The stance adopted by the Indian authorities was dismissed by Pakistan in its counter-pleadings, which were submitted on December 13 that year.
The reply also stated that Jadhav , who was a serving officer of the Indian Navy, does not fall under the purview of the Vienna Convention.
