Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet mother, wife in Islamabad today

Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet mother, wife in Islamabad today

Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh was present at the meeting between Jadhav and his family, which will last 30 minutes.

Subramanian Swamy, speaking to CNN-News18, said Pakistan should have allowed one-on-one contact to Jadhav's family and the meeting should have been private.

Jadhav met his wife and mother at the Foreign Office for around 40 minutes, but interacted through a glass panel and intercom. The meeting was held at the Foreign Ministry's Agha Shahi Block. An official from the Ministry of External Affairs is also accompanying the two to Pakistan. They also did not talk to the reporters while leaving the building, although journalists kept shouting questions. Photos from his meeting with his wife and mother have aroused suspicions that it did.

Indian has always denied the allegations, saying Jadhav was abducted from Iran where he had gone on a private business trip and then brought to Pakistan. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. They are expected to stay at the Indian embassy for a few hours before returning to India in the evening.

Jadhav's family had applied for visas last week. "We honour our commitments", a spokesman for Pakistan's foreign office, Mohammad Faisal, said in an earlier Twitter posting when the women first arrived at the ministry in Islamabad.




Roads leading to the Constitution Avenue, on which the ministry is located, were closed for traffic.

He added that media crews will be able to cover the arrival and departure of Jadhav's wife and mother at the ministry and Pakistan has agreed to honor India's request not to allow any media interaction with the visitors, the official added.

"It is a positive gesture and the family members were allowed to visit commander Jadhav on humanitarian grounds in accordance with Islamic morals and teachings", Faisal said, adding, the meeting shouldn't be linked with the proceedings ongoing at International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Pakistan today issued a new video of Indian prisoner on death row Kulbhusan Jadhav in which he is seen thanking the Pakistan government for arranging a meeting with his wife and mother.

Islamabad defended its stance of not granting diplomatic access to Jadhav, insisting he is a serving officer of the Indian navy and entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out subversive acts.
