Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother, wife meet him in Islamabad

Pakistan lets family meet Kulbhushan Jadhav

Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife leave after meeting with him

Faisal refused to disclose what was discussed by Jadhav with his family, but said that Jadhav was tasked by Indian intelligence "to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorism and sabotage aiming to destabilize and wage war against Pakistan".

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

India feels today's meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and his family was as much an image-building exercise as a tacit message from Pakistan to New Delhi, and so represents a "major climbdown".

Pawar said he and Kulbhushan's other friends would request Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to bring Jadhav back home at the earliest, he said.

Jadhav's kins will be accompanied by the Indian deputy high commissioner.

In June 2017, India had dismissed as "farcical" Pakistan releasing a fresh "confessional video" of Jadhav and had said that "manufactured facts" could not alter the reality in the case.

Kulbhushan Jadhav's family reached Islamabad via a commercial flight, and then was transported to the Indian High Commission. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the ministry.

Police and paramilitary security forces, including sharpshooters, were deployed at the MoFA to deal with any untoward security situation, they said. Special security passes have been issued for those visiting the Foreign Office, the officials added.

According to News 18, Jadhav would be meeting his family at the foreign office in Islamabad.

After the meet, Jadhav's mother Avanti Jadhav thanked Pakistan's foreign office for arranging the meeting with her son. India had approached the International Court of Justice against his execution which was later halted by ICJ pending the final verdict.

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.

India says Jadhav is a former officer of the Indian navy but he rejects the charges against him as baseless, saying he has no connection with the government.
