  • Kulbhushan Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage

The meeting between Jadhav and his family will take place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As per agreement, the family members of Mr Jadhav will be accompanied by a diplomat from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad during their visit.

Faisal earlier had tweeted, "Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds". Pakistan has issued visas to both the ladies.

Reports in the Pakistani media said India's Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh would fly to India to bring Jadhav's mother and wife to Pakistan for the meeting.

Addressing a news briefing here on Thursday, foreign office spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal said Jadhav still had pending mercy appeals so his execution was not on cards.

The Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi has issued visas to convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife, the Foreign Office said on Wednesday. "We await Indian decision in this regard", he added. India rejected the allegations that Jadhav had any connection with RAW.

According to details, Jadhav 's family will come to Pakistan along with Singh. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it. Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access toJadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.

Former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 in the southwestern province of Balochistan for entering Pakistan on fake identity documents to plot subversive acts. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. On May 18, the ICJ had stopped Pakistan from carrying out the punishment.
