Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet wife, mother in Islamabad today

Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet wife mother in Islamabad today

Earlier in the day, the mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav met him at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad for nearly 40 minutes after Pakistan allowed such interaction as a humanitarian gesture.

"I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Government of Pakistan for this gesture", Jadhav said in the brief video message. It claims that he was in possession of an Indian passport that identified him as Hussein Mubarak Patel.

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. "It has nothing to do with consular access", he added. After they went in, the door shut behind them.

During the press conference, the Foreign Office spokesperson made old allegations against Jadhav. The communication between them was through an inter-com device.

"As Jadhav's wife and mother were leaving, they thanked Pakistan, the FO, me, my team", Dr Faisal said. Kulbhushan Jadhav's kin is likely to head back to India soon after the meeting.

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.

Four killed and 15 injured as bus ploughs into pedestrians in Russian Federation
Their primary version of what happened is a technical malfunction that caused the bus to veer off the road and down the stairway. Five people were killed when a city bus ploughed into a pedestrian underpass in western Moscow on Monday, traffic police said.

Faisal clarified that the meeting was not the last meeting between Jhadav and his family, adding that the decision for consusal access to the convicted spy would be taken at a later date. The images show Jadhav sitting behind a glass wall with his mother and wife sitting on the other side. "We honour our commitments", spokesman Faisal earlier tweeted along with a picture of the visitors. 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.

They also did not talk to the reporters while leaving the building, although journalists kept shouting questions.

Faisal said Pakistan had hoped to make the family members available to media but that India objected, insisting journalists be barred from speaking to them.

He added: "I requested meeting my wife on humanitarian ground and I have been informed that my mother and wife are going to meet me today".

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.

On April 10, 2017, Pakistan sentenced the RAW agent to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi. Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the ICJ in May.
