Indian diplomats on Monday ignored the handshake gesture by senior Pakistani officials and instead greeted them with a ‘namaste’ on the first day of the hearing in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) here.

The four-day hearing in the Jadhav case opened Monday at the ICJ headquarters amid heightened tensions between India and Pakistan following one of the worst terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group that killed at least 40 CRPF soldiers.
