  • FO spokesperson said mother wife of the convicted Indian spy will come to Pakistan on December 25

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.

"There would be a partition for security reasons", a Pakistan foreign ministry official said when asked whether the family members would be allowed to meet Jadhav personally.

From Pakistan's side, Foreign Office Director India Dr Fareha Bugti was present at the meeting. "Many mothers have lost their sons owing to commander Jadhav's action on the Indian behest", he remarked.

Jadhav's family plans to return home soon after the meeting, which is expected last an hour, according to Pakistani foreign ministry officials.

Pakistan has deployed security and traffic personnel within and outside the FO in view of the meeting.

During the press conference, the Foreign Office spokesperson made old allegations against Jadhav. If we had allowed him to speak or listen to Jadhav, it would have come under the issue of consular access.

It was the first time that Jadhav was meeting his family since his arrest in March previous year, and Pakistan portrayed it as a humanitarian gesture to mark the birthday of the country's founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah.

Pakistan counter terrorism officials "arrest" Jadhav on the charges of terrorism and sabotage from Saravan, near the Iran border to the south east of Zahidan.

Pakistan on Monday described alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav as "the face of Indian terror" and said it would decide on consular access to him at an appropriate time.

In one of the photos that was taken during Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with his family, his right ear appears to show signs of injury.

He went on saying that the meeting should also not be deemed as consular access to the convicted spy. They also did not talk to the reporters while leaving the building, although journalists kept shouting questions. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.

Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav, a former officer in the Indian navy, was arrested in March 2016 in the Pakistan province of Baluchistan, where there has been a long-running conflict between national security forces and militant separatists.
