Kulbhushan Jadhav, retired Indian navy commander was allowed to meet his family after Indian appealed against Pakistan's verdict for him in an worldwide court of justice.

Elaborating on the meeting, Faisal said an Indian diplomat was present during the meeting but was not allowed to speak or listen in to the conversation between the convicted spy and his family, and could only observe the meeting.
In India, officials downplayed the comments, maintaining that the Indian diplomat was only accompanying Jadhav's family and it can not be construed as "consular access".+.
India's foreign affairs office has not responded to a request for comment on the meeting.
Speaking to ANI, Major General (retired) GD Bakshi said, "Today the spokesperson of Pakistan's foreign ministry was acting like he is the reincarnation of Mother Teresa".
India and Iran maintain that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
They also did not talk to the reporters while leaving the building, although journalists kept shouting questions. The spokesman said that Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military court on charges of espionage and terrorism.
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. Faisal also tweeted that the meeting was arranged in light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds".
