Pakistan Army on Sunday announced that its chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa is "analysing" the evidence against Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, sentenced to death by a military court, and will decide his appeal on merit at the earliest.

A Pakistan military court has rejected Kulbhushan Jadhav's mercy plea.

Pakistani forces have accused Jadhav of carrying out espionage activities on the behest of the RAW and central government, a claim denied by India.

Pakistan on Thursday said it was considering India's request to grant a visa to Jadhav's mother, but New Delhi said it had no knowledge about this. India said the former Navy officer was kidnapped from Iran, where he was conducting a business. Earlier, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said it was up to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to decide the future course in the case.

The editorial said there is some time before Jadhav exhausts his legal options, and a meeting between mother and son "would be humane and in no way undermine Pakistan's case against him".

It's a rare contest by the two nuclear-armed rivals at the top United Nations legal body whose rulings are binding, but occasionally flouted.

"Pakistan should not execute Jadhav pending final proceedings".

Under Pakistan's law, Jadhav is eligible to appeal for clemency to the Army Chief. "Clemency appeal of #KulbhushanJadhav was rejected by Military Appellate Court".

Till now, India has not received any information on the status of appeal or the petition given by the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav.

"But small gestures can have a way of lowering the temperature in the overall relationship between India and Pakistan and opening the door to further sensible measures". The decision to stay Jadhav's execution pending ICJ hearing is unanimous.

Pakistan has argued that spies are not entitled to consular access following an agreement made with India in 2008.
