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

The convicted Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav met his mother Avanti and wife Chetankul at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad on Monday, nearly 10 months after the former was arrested from Balochistan on espionage charges. The video statement, where he was seen briefly recounting the so-called confession, was apparently recorded sometime before he met his family.

"I have spoken to Mrs. Avantika Jadhav mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav and informed her about this", tweeted Swaraj.

"The meeting was very positive and they (Jadhav's mother and wife) were satisfied". Jadhav's wife and mother greeted the media persons after arrival but refused to respond to their questions. Officials also said Jadhav's family would not interact with the media.

It was the fist time Jadhav was meeting his family since his arrest in March past year.

On Dec 20, Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi issued the visas to the mother and wife of Jadhav to visit Islamabad to meet him. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. The mother and wife of Jadhav were being provided with a meeting with him in the light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds", Faisal had said.

Police and paramilitary security forces including sharpshooters have been deployed at the MOFA to deal with any untoward security situation, they said.

The video message played by the Foreign Office during a press conference after Jadhav's meeting with his family was recorded before their meeting, officials said.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammed Faisal tweeted images showing Jadhav speaking to his mother Avanti and wife through an intercom with a glass panel separating them.

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.

On April 10, a Field General Court Martial - under the Pakistan Army Act, 1952, and Official Secrets Act, 1923 - awarded death sentence to Jadhav for espionage and sabotage.
