Kulbhushan Jadhav is the face of Indian terrorism in Pakistan: FO

As news channels played out images of Kulbhushan Jadhav meeting his mother and wife - separated by a glass wall - a childhood friend of the former Indian Navy officer expressed his frustration on the Pakistani authorities not allowing the family members to hug him.

Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by a Pakistan military court on charges of "espionage" and "subversive activities", was finally allowed to meet his mother and wife after a long and arduous 22-month wait.

Separately, Faisal had said that the meeting would take place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its photo and video footage would be issued. "So what had happened today can not be called a family meeting".

Lieutenant General (Retd.) Raj Kadyan also said that the meeting that took place on Monday can not be called a family meeting. India also asked for granting consular access for Kulbhushan Jadhav at ICJ. the current act of the meeting may lead to a good outcome but we can not be sure of anything as of now. "India should take up Jadhav's case even more forcefully while the global community should put pressure on Pakistan and expose them", she said.

The meeting started at around 1.35pm and lasted about 45 minutes, after which the entire party remerged, and were driven away in a white SUV.

"I certainly would not take undue satisfaction from this meeting but nor would I say completely negative things because at least the meeting happened and the family was able to meet him".

Jadhav's wife and mother, before finally meeting him, visited the Indian High Commission in the Pakistani capital, after which they moved to the Pakistan MoFA building. It claims that he was in possession of an Indian passport that identified him as Hussein Mubarak Patel.

Having lost her brother four years back in Pakistan, Kaur said she could fully understand what Jadhav's family must be going through at this hour. The reply, which was submitted by the Foreign Office's Director, Fariha Bugti, also claimed that Jadhav's case did not fall under the purview of the Vienna Convention. The wife and mother greeted the media after arrival but refused to respond to questions.

While the masterminds of horrific Mumbai attack are yet to face any kind of justice in Pakistan, Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested and sentenced in less than a year in a closed-door trial by a military court.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial (FGCM) in Pakistan on April 10.

Earlier today, Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told a Pakistani media channel that Pakistan has granted India consular access to Jadhav since an Indian diplomat will be accompanying the prisoner's wife and mother. Faisal also tweeted that the meeting was arranged in light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds".
