Kulbhushan Jadhav's Mother and wife to meet him in Pakistan today

25 December 2017

Pakistan Foreign Office said in a statement on Monday that arrested Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav has not been given consular access.

A video confession given by Mr. Jadhav was played before the press briefing by the Ministry.

"I have been treated with dignity and honour and in a very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities".

Meanwhile, after a long wait, the wife and the mother of Jadhav will meet him later today.

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

Pawar said he and Kulbhushan's other friends would request Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to bring Jadhav back home at the earliest, he said.

One may argue here that Pakistan may have made them change their clothes before they met Kulbhushan, but then there are pictures from after the meeting that show them wearing the same clothes that they were wearing before the meeting. "Indian DHC in Islamabad will be the accompanying diplomat".

Jadhav's family had applied for visas last week. Special security passes have been issued for those visiting the Foreign Office, the officials added.

India's Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, who was supposed to accompany Jadhav's mother and wife to Islamabad, will not be allowed to meet him.

"Media may kindly be kept at a distance to ensure security of the family members and avoid any harassment to them", he quoted from a letter the foreign ministry received from the Indian government ahead of Monday's meeting.

According to News 18, Jadhav would be meeting his family at the foreign office in Islamabad.

Following this, India moved the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammed Faisal tweeted images showing Jadhav speaking to his mother Avanti and wife through an intercom with a glass panel separating them. The Indian Government recognised Jadhav as a former naval officer, who was abducted by Pakistan's ISI from Iran.
