  • Allowed Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with wife, mother on 'humanitarian grounds'

Spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal clarified that convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with mother and wife was not the last meeting. The video statement, where he was seen briefly recounting the so-called confession, was apparently recorded sometime before he met his family.

India has maintained that Jadhav is not a spy, and that he was kidnapped by Pakistan.

In Balochistan, Pakistan's largest but least developed province, security forces have been battling a years-long separatist insurgency that authorities have repeatedly characterised as "terrorism" promoted by hostile states such as India.

The mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav held a meeting with him after Pakistani government accepted India's request. Before the meeting, the security check of the family was performed.

The son of a retired police officer, Jadhav's neighbours remember him as a shy but helpful man who was good at sport and studies, according to Indian media reports.

From Pakistan's side, Foreign Office Director India Dr Fareha Bugti was present at the meeting.

Accompanied by Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh and a Pakistani woman official, TV footage showed Jadhav's family entering the main building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) and the door shutting behind them.

He affirmed that Kulbhushan was not given consular access as the Indian official was barred to speak anything. Jadhav's wife and mother greeted the media persons after arrival but refused to respond to their questions. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the Foreign Ministry.

Pakistani officials said Jadhav was in good health.

Both family members of Jadhav landed at the Islamabad airport earlier today from where they were taken to the office of Indian High Commission.

After Jadhav was sentenced to death in April, India asked the World Court for an injunction to bar the execution, arguing that he was denied diplomatic assistance during what it says was an unfair trial.
