Kulbhushan Jadhav meets family, mother thanks Pakistan

Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is on death row in Pakistan for alleged spying, met his wife and mother - but separated by a glass screen - in a carefully choreographed event that unfolded in tweets, photos and TV footage.

A video confession given by Mr. Jadhav was played before the press briefing by the Ministry.

India has maintained that Jadhav is not a spy, and that he was kidnapped by Pakistan.

"I have been treated with dignity and honour and in a very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities".

He added that media crews will be able to cover the arrival and departure of Jadhav's wife and mother at the ministry and Pakistan has agreed to honor India's request not to allow any media interaction with the visitors, the official added. Before the meeting, the security check of the family was performed. "We will decide about it in due course", foreign office spokesperson said. If we had allowed him to speak or listen to Jadhav, it would have come under the issue of consular access.

All the information about the meeting emerged through Pakistani Foreign Ministry tweets and images.

"An Indian diplomat was present during the meeting and he could see Jadhav but he was not allowed to speak to him", Faisal said.

He said he was involved in "terror activities" and was "face of Indian terror on Pakistani soil". Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city.

Both family members of Jadhav landed at the Islamabad airport earlier today from where they were taken to the office of Indian High Commission.

"It was a humanitarian meeting, it was not consular access". The wife and mother greeted media persons with a namaste after arriving at the ministry but did not respond to their questions. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the ministry.

Police and paramilitary security forces, including sharpshooters, were deployed at the ministry to deal with any untoward security situation, officials said.

After Jadhav was sentenced to death in April, India asked the World Court for an injunction to bar the execution, arguing that he was denied diplomatic assistance during what it says was an unfair trial.
