New Delhi:

The International Court of Justice will resume hearing in Kulbhsuhan Jadhav case on Wednesday. India will file a written submission in case hoping that the international court would declare Jadhav’s death sentence as a breach of international law.

Jadhav, a 47-year-old former Indian naval officer, is on death row in Pakistan after the country's military in a secret trial in April found him guilty of espionage and terrorism.

Jadhav's death sentence was stayed in May after a ruling by the ICJ on India's appeal. The hearing in the case is set to resume this month at The Hague-based court.

Pakistan claims it arrested Jadhav in March last year from its restive Balochistan province, where the CPEC culminates at the deep-water Gwadar Port.
