HC reserves order on plea to direct Govt to secure Jadhav's release

The Delhi High Court reserved its order on a plea for a direction to the government to approach the International Court of Justice for the release of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national who is on the death row in Pakistan on wednesday.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Anu Malhotra said it will pass an order on the petition, which the Centre said was "not a public interest litigation" and the government has already taken steps to secure Jadhav's release.

Additional Solicitor General(ASG) Sanjay Jain, appearing for Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), submitted that the "subject matter raised in the petition before the court is already under consideration by the ministry concerned and it has already assured the nation for his release." 

"Even the External Affairs Minister, going out of the way, has announced in the floor of Parliament that every possible action will be taken to bring back Jadhav," he said.
