A day before International Court of Justice is scheduled to announce its verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan hanged four ‘hardcore terrorists’ in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa jail, as per a statement by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The release stated that these four terrorists were hanged because of their involvement in heinous offences related to terrorism, including the killing of innocent civilians, destruction of educational institutions, attacking armed forces of Pakistan and law enforcement agencies. It mentioned that these terrorists were tried by military courts.

Kulbhushan Jadhav was captured by Pakistani forces in March last year. He was also sentenced to death by a military court on charges of espionage and subversive activities. India was denied consular access to Jadhav 16 times, claiming that the Indian National was an agent of India’s external intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). However, his execution was stayed last week by the ICJ which will announce its verdict on 3:30 PM, as per a PTI report.
