Jadhav, a former officer in the Indian Navy, is now on death row in Pakistan on charges of espionage and subversive activities.

Retired Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav's clemency appeal has been rejected by the Pakistan Army's military appellate court, ANI tweeted. the appeal will now be reviewed by Islamabad's chief of army staff. Kulbhushan Jadhav, 46, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military tribunal in April on charges of espionage and terrorism. Replying to a question, he said the Army Chief will take a final decision on the appeal of Jhadav at the earliest and assured that the decision will be based on justice.

"They (pakistan) can not execute Jadhav as of now, because they made a promise before the ICJ that as long as the proceedings are continuing, they can not execute".

"The petition of Indian national is now with COAS who'll decide soon".

Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor told reporters on Sunday that General Bajwa was "analysing the evidence against Jadhav".

But when asked whether she and Kontinen will rekindle their partnership anywhere other than next year's Wimbledon, she was unsure. The Scot admitted that, had it been anyone else asking, he probably would have said no. "Now I look more at Djokovic, his game".

Meanwhile, a Visa application of Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother is pending before Pakistan's foreign office.

Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, last week, took on Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz for not entertaining the request for a visa to the mother of Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death for alleged espionage.

The advocate's remark came a day after Pakistan's media wing, ISPR, informed that the Paksitan chief was "analysing" evidence against Jadhav.

The daily sees granting of Visa to Jadhav's mother as a small gesture which can lower the temperature in the overall relationship between India and Pakistan and opening the door to further sensible measures. The International Court of Justice in The Hague in May halted his execution on India's appeal.

Pakistan claims Mr Jadhav was arrested from the restive Balochistan province on March 3.
