The UN’s highest judicial body also asked Pakistan to take “all measures” to ensure that Jadhav, sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for alleged espionage, was not executed till the court had delivered its final verdict on the issue.   
India welcomed the court’s unanimous decision on Jadhav, 46, while Islamabad said it had informed the ICJ that it did not accept the court’s jurisdiction in matters related to national security.   
Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his satisfaction with the verdict and spoke to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who described the order as a “great relief”. The two leaders thanked senior lawyer Harish Salve, who headed a battery of lawyers presenting India’’s case at The Hague.
