Court To Hear Govt Petition Regarding Kulbushan Counsel On Aug 3

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) has set a hearing on August 3 for government petition seeking appointment of a counsel for Indian spy Kulbhuhan Jadhav. 

The IHC has constituted a bench for the federal government plea seeking to appoint counsel for Indian spy and agent of intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) Kulbhushan Jadhav under the verdict of International Court of Justice (ICJ).

The bench headed by IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah will conduct proceedings on the petition on August 3.

Earlier on July 22, 2020, the government had approached the court stating that Kulbhushan, who was involved in several terrorist activities in Pakistan, had refused to file plea against his sentence. The agent cannot appoint lawyer in Pakistan without assistance from India, it read.
