  • Kulbhushan Jadhav meets family, mother thanks Pakistan

He said the visit was granted in accordance with Islamic customs despite Jadhav's involvement in "acts of terrorism".

Shortly after the family of Jadhav met him, Mashal Malik, wife of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik, in a video statement has said that while Pakistan was allowing alleged Indian spy Kalbushan Jadhav to meet his wife and mother on humanitarian grounds India has "kept her and her daughter from meeting Malik for the past three years".

He said the meeting was originally scheduled to last half an hour but was extended by another 10 minutes. Before the meeting, the security check of the family was performed.

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

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. "This was conveyed to Indian High Commission categorically", he said. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. Jadhav's mother Avanti and wife Chetankul will leave for India today.

Kulbhushan Jadhav was brought to the Ministry through the back door for meeting with his family members under strict security measures.

Pakistan foreign office later released pictures of Jadhav talking to his wife and mother from behind a glass screen. Roads leading to the Constitution Avenue, on which MOFA is located, were closed for traffic.

Pakistan has announced it would issue photos and a video of the meeting and also allow the family to interact with media, if India agrees.

During a press conference, the foreign office spokesperson made 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.
