Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav remains in Pakistan’s custody for espionage, terrorism, and sabotage, Dr. Mohammad Faisal said on Twitter.

Kulbhushan Jadhav, a commander of the Indian Navy associated with Indian covert agency Research and Analysis Wing, was arrested on 3-March 2016, from Balochistan on the allegations of espionage and terrorism.

He was subsequently sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court after he confessed to his involvement in terrorist plots.

India, however, claimed that Kulbushan Jadhav was not a spy and challenged his sentencing in the International Court of Justice.

On 17-July, the International Court of Justice ordered Pakistan to review the death sentence handed to Jadhav.

The court also ruled that Pakistan should provide Indian consular officers access to Jadhav and inform him of his rights under the Vienna Convention.
