Family of Convicted Indian Spy Arrives in Pakistan to See Him

Christmas gift Kulbhusan Jadhav to meet mother wife in Pakistan on December 25

India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.

He said, "What Pakistan did (allowing Jadhav's mother and wife to meet him) is just a spectacle for the global community", Pawar said. Jadhav's family had applied for visas last week.

Earlier, media reports said that Pakistan had asked India to convey the plan of Jadhav's family at the earliest otherwise it would be hard to arrange the meeting.

The meeting took place at the Pakistan Foreign Office in Islamabad, where Jadhav's emotional mother and wife were seen getting out of a vehicle after arriving at the meet location from the Indian embassy.

Earlier in the day, the mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav met him at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad for nearly 40 minutes after Pakistan allowed such interaction as a humanitarian gesture.

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

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Foreign Office, in a statement, has clarified that Jadhav was not given consular access. The communication between them was through an inter-com device.

After a long wait, wife and mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav will meet him on Monday. The two women had arrived in Islamabad earlier in the day via Dubai on a commercial flight, and spent about 30 minutes at the Indian High Commission before being driven to the Foreign Ministry.

Pakistan released a picture of Jadhav's mother, Avanti, and wife, Chetankul, seated at a desk and speaking to him from behind a glass window.

"This step is taken up to show International Court of Justice (ICJ) that they have arranged a meeting with Jadhav's family on humanitarian grounds just to make the case stronger", added Subroto.

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

They also did not talk to the reporters while leaving the building, although journalists kept shouting questions. "As far as I know there were no private messages exchanged, but let us except that something is better than nothing particularly if it turns out to be the first step in the positive direction and that's what we must hope for", Tharoor added. The meeting took place for 40 minutes which concluded at 1:35 pm. "It should be categorically registered", he added.

Pakistani officials insist Jadhav has confessed before the country's military court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency "to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities" against Pakistan.

ICJ, in May this year, not only stayed Kulbhushan Jadhav's death sentence till the final verdict but also said that Pakistan should grant India the consular access so that India could offer all possible help to Kulbhushan Jadhav. It is expected to hold another hearing in March or April.
