Harish Salve
The Hague: A screengrab of Advocate Harish Salve as he speaks at the International Court of Justice during a public hearing in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the alleged Indian spy sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in The Hague, Netherlands on May 15, 2017.IANS

Senior advocate Harish Salve, who represented Kulbhushan Jadhav at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Hague, charged only Re 1 as his fee to fight the case, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj revealed on Monday.

"Not fair. Harish Salve has charged us Re 1 as his fee for this case," Swaraj tweeted in response to a tweet by someone named Sanjeev Goyal. The man had tweeted saying any good lawyer in India would have fought Jadhav's case at the ICJ at a much lesser fee than what Salve must have charged.

Goyal's tweet seems to upset Twitter users, who lashed out at him on the social networking platform. Here are some of the reactions:

Goyal later tweeted, thanking Swaraj for the "clarification".
