  • Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet wife, mother in Islamabad today

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.

The death sentence against Jadhav was stayed in May this year after New Delhi took Islamabad to the International Court of Justice alleging Pakistan had violated the Vienna Convention on Consular Access. "So what had happened today can not be called a family meeting".

The incarcerated former Indian Navy officer can be seen meeting with his kin in photos released by the Pakistani government.

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".+.

Jadhav gave details of his meetings with his contacts in Pakistan and exposed the network which he was handling, according to his confessional statement, obtained by The Associated Press.

The meeting between the Indian spy and his family started at 2:18pm and lasted nearly 40 minutes.

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.

Pakistan on December 20 issued a visa to Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him.

TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city. It claims that he was in possession of an Indian passport that identified him as Hussein Mubarak Patel.

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".
