Kulbhushan Jadhav thanks Pakistan govt for allowing him to meet his family

Kulbhushan Jadhav meets family, mother thanks Pakistan

Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, was arrested on March 3, 2016, in a "counter-intelligence operation" from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan.

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

The mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav held a meeting with him after Pakistani government accepted India's request.

Pakistan had earlier said that Jadhav was not under any threat of immediate execution. It was not clear whether the confession was extracted under duress, but in a video statement he Jadhav said "I have been treated with dignity and honor and very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities". "This was conveyed to Indian High Commission categorically", he said. TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.

Faisal said Pakistan had hoped to make the family members available to media but that India objected, insisting journalists be barred from speaking to them.

Commerce sets final duties on Bombardier totaling nearly 300 percent
Bombardier calls Boeing's criticism unfounded, saying that the US company's entire case has been overtaken by events. He also said that Boeing's claim was meritless since they don't have an aircraft that can compare to the CSeries.

Roads leading to the Constitution Avenue, on which MOFA is located, have been closed for traffic.

"An Indian diplomat was present during the meeting and he could see Jadhav but he was not allowed to speak to him", Faisal said.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military court on charges of espionage and terrorism. Pakistan on 20 December issued visa to Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him.

Pakistan claims that its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from restive Balochistan province on March 3 a year ago after he reportedly entered from Iran.

However, New Delhi has been maintaining that Jadhav, a retired Navy officer, was kidnapped from Iran where he had some business interest.
