Moments after Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife met him in Islamabad, the Pakistan Foreign Office released a video of him thanking the authorities for facilitating the meeting. "One can only imagine the plight of Jadhav's mother".

His wife and mother will reach Pakistan through a commercial flight and will leave for India today after the meeting.

India's Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, who was supposed to accompany Jadhav's mother and wife to Islamabad, will not be allowed to meet him. "Indian DHC in Islamabad will be the accompanying diplomat". TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city. He had added that Pakistan had allowed Jadhav's meeting with his mother and wife purely on "humanitarian grounds". It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.

Officials said all arrangements are in place for the meeting between Jadhav and his wife and mother, and sharpshooters were deployed at the sprawling FO building ahead of the meeting. 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.

BJP delegation meets Gujarat Governor, stakes claim to form govt
Apart from Thakur, Union Health Minister JP Nadda is also in the race with a strong section still favouring Dhumal. Bharatiya Janata Party officially laid claim to form a new government in Gujarat on Saturday.


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.

After Jadhav was sentenced to death on charges of espionage and terrorism by Pakistan, India had moved the ICJ in May for justice.

The ICJ suspended the execution, pending final judgment by the court.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran. India claims the former Navy officer, who set up a business in Iran's Chabahar port after retiring from the force, was abducted and sold to Pakistan intelligence agencies by the Taliban.
