The International Court Of Justice (ICJ) delivered its verdict Wednesday in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national currently on death row in Pakistan, ruling in favor of India.

The ICJ ruled that Pakistan must review the death sentence for Kulbhushan Jadhav.

India had challenged a Pakistan military court's verdict at The Hague, saying it was based on an "extracted confession", adding that New Delhi was repeatedly denied consular access to Jadhav in breach of provisions of Vienna Convention.

Jadhav, 49, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by the court on charges of "espionage and terrorism" after a closed trial in April 2017.

Reading out the verdict, President of the Court Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf ordered an "effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Mr Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav".
