Jadhav's mother, wife to meet him on December 25

Kulbhushan Jadhav is at the heart of a dispute between India and Pakistan.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has granted permission to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother to meet him on December 25. "On this we asked Pakistan to give visa to the mother as well", Sushma Swaraj, India's Minister of External Affairs said. The details of the visit, however, are still being worked out. As India took the case to International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May, Pakistan even told the United Nations court that "Pakistan doesn't see the merit in a state which sends a spy and is seeking access to a tool for terror".

After Pakistan had announced that Jadhav was in its custody in March 2016, a Pakistan military court swiftly tried and sentenced him to death for espionage and terrorism charges in April this year. Jadhav has filed a clemency appeal with Pakistan's Army chief, which is pending.

The court gave interim directions to Pakistan to stay the execution, while the trial and final judgement still to be held.

Pakistan's foreign office had earlier this month said it will allow Jadhav to meet his wife. "We also raised concern about their safety and security in Pakistan. /3".

The Pakistan foreign office in a tweet had said that it had received India's reply to Pakistan's humanitarian offer. "Pak has agreed to facilitate the visit of mother & wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav and assured us of their safety, security and freedom of movement in Pakistan", Swaraj said. An Indian High Commission official will also be allowed to be present at the meeting, confirmed the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), stating that the request for meeting was made on November 13.

He added that "further modalities of the meeting" will be worked out in consultation with the wife and mother of Jadhav. We have been seeking access for both the mother and wife for a long time.

He said the meeting would help them know the physical and mental condition of Jadhav.
