  • Kulbhushan Jadhav meets wife mother from behind glass

The wife and mother of an imprisoned Indian naval officer facing the death penalty in Pakistan for espionage and sabotage were allowed to meet with him on Monday in what the Foreign Ministry said was a "humanitarian gesture".

An Indian diplomat was present during the meeting, but was not allowed to talk to Jadhav or listen to the conversation with his family, the foreign ministry spokesman said. Pakistani officials say the meeting has been allowed "purely on humanitarian grounds" and special arrangements have been put in place at the foreign ministry where the interaction will take place.

Pakistan Foreign Office said in a statement Monday that arrested Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav has not been given consular access. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.

"The meeting was very positive and they (Jadhav's mother and wife) were satisfied".

According to itinerary details obtained by Geo News, Jadhav's mother and wife flew in to Islamabad via Dubai.

"The family members of Indian spy looked satisfied and they thanked Pakistan for the gesture" said Dr Faisal.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province after he reportedly entered from Iran. Faisal had earlier said that the meeting's photo and video foot-age will also be issued. According to sources in Chabahar, Jadhav lived with his family; his family, however, declined to comment on this.

Notably, the ceasefire on the LoC between India and Pakistan has been violated extensively in the past 18 months. Security has been deployed at the FO building ahead of the meeting. It is expected to hold another hearing in March or April. While Pakistan claims that Jadhav was arrested by security forces from Balochistan province on March 3 past year after he reportedly entered from Iran, the Indian side maintains that he was kidnapped in Iran where he did business. Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh, who accompanied Jadhav's family, was seen watching the reunion from a distance.
