The International Court of Justice (ICJ), has fixed time limits for India and Pakistan for filing of written pleadings in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
In a statement, ICJ said, it has fixed a time limit of 17th April for India and 17th July for Pakistan.
Jadhav, an Indian national, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage in April, following which India moved The Hague-based ICJ in May.
A 10-member bench of ICJ had restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till adjudication of the case.
Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav from its restive Balochistan province in March last year after he reportedly entered from Iran.
India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.>
