After India concluded its oral observation at 3 pm, it's now Pakistan's turn to present its side of the story. Pakistan's oral representation began at 6.30 pm and is likely to continue till 8 pm. Pakistan is being represented by Khawar Qureshi at the ICJ.

On 8 May, India had moved a petition before the ICJ to seek justice for Jadhav, 46, alleging a violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by Pakistan after 16 requests for consular access to the former naval officer were consistently denied.

A Pakistani military court gave Jadhav the death sentence for alleged espionage and subversive activities. Pakistan has also not responded to the request for visas applied by Jadhav's family.

Jadhav was arrested on 3 March, 2017.
