Pakistan has received written pleadings from the International Court of Justice (ICJ), submitted by India in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian national sentenced to death on charges of spying, the Foreign Ministry said.

The ministry said in a statement Friday that the note is under consideration by a team of lawyers and experts, led by the Attorney General of Pakistan.

"The position of the Government of Pakistan, especially highlighting the acts of espionage, terrorism and sabotage committed by Commander Jadhav in Pakistan, which resulted in the loss of many precious and innocent lives of Pakistanis, would soon be submitted at the International Court of Justice," the statement said.

Pakistan says Jadhav was arrested on March 3 last year in restive Balochistan province and sentenced to death in April this year by a military court for carrying out "espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan."

Shortly after his arrest, Pakistan military's media-wing Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) had released his confessional video admitting involvement in spying.

India later approached the ICJ which stopped Pakistan from implementing Jadhav execution. India had also rejected Pakistan's claims and said Jadhav was "kidnapped" and tried on "concocted charges."
