PESHAWAR, 16 May: Pakistan on Monday pleaded the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to dismiss the plea of India against sentencing of India spy Kulbhushan Yadav by Pakistan as it has no jurisdiction in the case.

The Indian lawyer said in his arguments during hearing of the case at The Hague, Netherlands, that Kulbhushan was in Iran for a trade-related visit and the Pakistani security forces arrested him there. He insisted that Kulbhushan was innocent and he was languishing in Pakistani prisons for the last one year.

Pakistani lawyer Barrister Khawar Qureshi said RAW agent Kulbhushan has confessed to his involvement in terror incidents in Pakistan. He said three passports were recovered from Kulbhushan when he was arrested. He said Pakistan has solid proofs against him.

Kulbhushan was arrested by the Pakistani security agencies last year. He had confessed his involvement in terror incidents in Pakistan after which a military court awarded him death sentence.
