ISLAMABAD (92 News) - The Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted India another chance to provide a legal counsel to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav to implement the verdict of the International Court of Justice.

A bench comprising of Chief Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb heard the request of the Law Ministry to provide a legal counsel to Jadhav.

Hearing the plea, Chief Justice Athar Minallah remarked that India had committed some mistake in understanding the ICJ verdict. "India should look at its citizen as a human being."

Attorney General Khalid Javed Khan said that Pakistan is providing a chance to India which is not getting it. "If the court starts proceedings of the case, the justice should not only be done but also seen to be done," he added.

He contended that the court had appointed two senior lawyers as court assistants on the first hearing and the senior lawyers were not related to the government.

Later, the court adjourned the hearing till April 13.
