Pakistan grants visa to wife, mother of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav

Kulbhushan Jadhav

Pakistan has issued visas to the mother and wife of Indian death row spy Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet him.

Islamabad had last week directed its High Commission in New Delhi to issue the visas.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Fisal said this in a tweet. A Pakistani military court, which tried Jadhav on espionage and terror charges in Pakistan, sentenced him to death in April this year.

Pakistan which has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav agreed to let him meet his wife on "humanitarian grounds".

Kulbhushan Jadhav's family is expected to arrive in Pakistan this Saturday. An official of the Indian high commission in Islamabad would also be allowed to accompany them.

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy. She said since 2014, Indian government has provided legal assistance to 3 Indian civilian prisoners lodged in Pakistani jails.

On March 25, a day after the arrest, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs claimed that Jadhav had no connection with the government, but admitted that he was a former Naval officer.

India has challenged Pakistan's refusal to grant consular access to the spy in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Pakistan has reportedly assured to provide maximum security to Jadhav's family during their stay in Pakistan.
