The Islamabad High Court on Thursday asked India to appoint a lawyer for jailed national Kulbhushan Jadhav by April 13 to argue against his conviction and sentencing by a Pakistan court, reported PTI.

Jadhav, a retired Indian Naval officer, has been imprisoned in Pakistan since 2016. Pakistan claims he was caught “spying” in the country, while India says he was kidnapped from Iran.
