  • Pakistan has warned of withdrawal of the offer if India further delays a clear reply

Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother today arrived here for a meeting with him at the Foreign Affairs Ministry, according to Pakistani media.

On Dec 20, Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi issued the visas to the mother and wife of Jadhav to visit Islamabad to meet him.

The foreign office spokesman said that India had requested Pakistan not to allow media interaction of Jadhav's mother and wife to ensure their privacy. He added that the two women will fly to Islamabad on Monday to meet with Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was arrested in March 2016 by Pakistani officials after he entered the country from neighboring Iran. Meanwhile, the foreign ministry of Pakistan clarified that this should not be taken as consular access. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.

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.

Jadhav, an in-service Indian navy officer had illegally crossed into Pakistan from Iran and confessed to have been tasked by Indian intelligence agency to damage China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and fan unrest in Balochistan and parts of Pakistan.

"This is not their last meeting with him", he said, indicating that Jadhav would not be executed in the near future. Indian Deputy High Commissioner in Islamabad, J P Singh will accompany the duo during the meeting. "Indian DHC in Islamabad will be the accompanying diplomat".

Jadhav was at the ministry before his family arrived.

Police and paramilitary security forces, including sharpshooters, were deployed at the ministry to deal with any untoward security situation, they said.

On April 10, a Field General Court Martial - under the Pakistan Army Act, 1952, and Official Secrets Act, 1923 - awarded death sentence to Jadhav for espionage and sabotage. "I am very thankful to the government of Pakistan for the humanitarian gesture", Jadhav was heard saying in the video.

He affirmed that Kulbhushan was not given consular access as the Indian official was barred to speak anything.
