Hours Before ICJ's Verdict On Kulbhushan Jadhav's Case, Farooq Abdullah Says

On the day when the International Court of Justice (ICJ) will deliver the verdict in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case on Wednesday evening, NC chief Farooq Abdullah, when questioned on Pakistan's conduct on the arrested Indian citizen in response said, 'why do you want to jump the gun?'

Speaking over the verdict that comes amidst strained India-Pakistan ties, Abdullah in a cryptic response said that the matter is in the Court and that both sides will present their sides.

He said, "As long as it is the matter of the Court, even I am waiting to see what the International Court of Justice has to say. Why do you want to jump the gun? Whatever the verdict is, we will know today in the Court. They will keep their case ahead, the government of India will put forth their case."

In the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan has been persistently claiming that its military arrested Jadhav from Balochistan province on March 3, 2016, even as India has maintained that the retired Indian Navy Officer was abducted from Iran. Pakistan has on multiple occasions shared heavily edited 'confession' videos of Jadhav, that seemingly looked scripted in nature. India has also accused Pakistan of mistreating Jadhav, with the evident bruises on his face.
