Hours before the International Court of Justice stayed the hanging of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, the All India Football Federation's (AIFF) website was hacked by an anonymous group called 'Zero Cool'.
The group hacked the website and posted a message against Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of "spying".

"Do you know why you got hacked? Hahahaha! Do you need Kulbushan Jadhav back? We will send you his dead body," reads the message posted on the site.

However, the AIFF site has now been restored.

"Sorry for the inconveniences faced by you due to a technical glitch on http://www.the-aiff.com. Please stay tuned, we'll come back shortly," said AIFF in a message on Twitter.

This hacking took place before the order by the Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) staying the hanging of Jadhav. India had approached the ICJ against the death sentence handed down to Jadhav by Pakistan's Field General Court Martial last month.

Pakistan claims its security forces had arrested Jadhav from the restive Balochistan province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran. It also claimed that he was "a serving officer in the Indian Navy." Jadhav was sentenced to death for "espionage and subversive activities".

India acknowledges that Jadhav had served with the Navy but denies that he has any connection with the government.

India has also handed over to Pakistan an appeal by Jadhav's mother, initiating a process to get his conviction overturned.

The appeal on behalf of Jadhav was given last month to Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua by Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale, who also handed over a petition by Jadhav's mother seeking the Pakistan government's intervention for his release and expressing the desire to meet him.
