No hand shake, only 'namaskar' from Indian delegation to Pak counterparts at ICJ
This was the clear reflection of increased chill in the Indo-Pak ties in the aftermath the killing of nearly 40 CRPF personnel in ghastly Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir on February 14.
The attack in Awantipora was orchestrated by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) which is based in Pakistan and backed by Islamabad.
48-year-old former naval officer, Kulbhushan Jadhav, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism on April 11, 2017, following which India moved the ICJ, challenging the verdict. Subsequently, on May 18, 2017, a 10-member bench of the ICJ restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till the adjudication of the case.
