Pak: after facing embarrassment in ICJ and huge criticism across the country here is what Pakistan has decided to do over Jadhav’s Case
Pakistan after facing diplomatic defeat against India in the International Court of Justice has changed its Attorney General in Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case following widespread calls for a change.
After the ICJ ordered Pakistan to stay Jadhav’s execution on Thursday, opposition parties criticised the government’s handling of the case at The Hague-based court and demanded a change in the country’s legal team.

Harish Salve, India’s lead counsel, charged only one rupee for taking up Jadhav’s case.
