Welcoming International Court of Justice's (ICJ) verdict in which it asked Pakistan to review the death sentence to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said: "Truth and justice have prevailed."

Taking to Twitter, PM Modi wrote: "We welcome today’s verdict in the @CIJ_ICJ. Truth and justice have prevailed. Congratulations to the ICJ for a verdict based on extensive study of facts. I am sure Kulbhushan Jadhav will get justice."

He further said, "Our Government will always work for the safety and welfare of every Indian."

Jadhav has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of "espionage and terrorism".

A bench led by President of the Court Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf ordered an "effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Mr Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav".

The bench also ruled that Pakistan had violated India's rights to consular visits after his arrest.

Pakistan "deprived the Republic of India of the right to communicate with and have access to Mr Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav, to visit him in detention and to arrange for his legal representation", the judges said.

The verdict in the high-profile case comes nearly five months after a 15-member bench of ICJ led by Judge Yusuf had reserved its decision on February 21 after hearing oral submissions by India and Pakistan. The proceedings of the case took two years and two months to complete.
