MUMBAI: A former chief justice of India has stated that the country has committed a mistake by going to International Court of Justice (ICJ) for Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
Ex-Indian chief justice Markandey Katju tweeted, “It was a serious mistake for India to go to ICJ on this issue, as now Pakistan can raise all kind of issues, particularly Kashmir.”
He added, “By going to the ICJ we may have opened up a Pandora’s box.”

It should be noted that India had moved to ICJ to raise the issue of Kulbhushan Jadhav’s execution.
The international court had stayed Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence and stated that he will not be executed before the court has given its final decision.
