Kulbhushan Jadhav's Mother and wife to meet him in Pakistan today

Kulbhushan Jadhav's Mother and wife to meet him in Pakistan today

India's Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, who was supposed to accompany Jadhav's mother and wife to Islamabad, will not be allowed to meet him. A glass wall was put between Jadhav and the rest during the meeting. Jadhav spoke to his family members through an intercom.

All the information about the meeting emerged through Pakistani foreign ministry tweets and images.

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. "Indian DHC in Islamabad will be the accompanying diplomat". It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.

The two women looked visibly anxious and stressed before and after meeting Jadhav, and later returned to India by plane. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. After a brief stay, the mother and wife went to Foreign Office amid tight security.

Police and paramilitary security forces including sharpshooters have been deployed at the MOFA to deal with any untoward security situation, they said. Roads leading to the Constitution Avenue, on which MOFA is located, were closed for traffic.

Although Pakistan had issued visas to Jadhav's wife and mother on "humanitarian grounds" earlier this month, it has denied India consular access to the spy despite repeated requests on the grounds that it is non-applicable under the Vienna Convention due to his involvement in espionage, FO Spokesperson Dr Faisal said.

During the press conference, the spokesperson read out a statement repeating old allegations against Jadhav.

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.
