Allowed Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with wife, mother on 'humanitarian grounds'

"Can you imagine what a mother who last saw her son two years ago must have felt when allowed to meet him from across a glass partition and was unable to touch him", Pawar told PTI. "They thanked us before leaving", Faisal said.

However, India requested Pakistan not to arrange any such media interaction with the visiting females, as well didn't send media representatives with ‏ Kulbhushan Jadhav's family to Islamabad.

In its application, India had also informed the ICJ that it learnt about the death sentence against Jadhav from a press release.

It was the first meeting between Jadhav and his family since his arrest in March previous year.

One may argue here that Pakistan may have made them change their clothes before they met Kulbhushan, but then there are pictures from after the meeting that show them wearing the same clothes that they were wearing before the meeting.

On the question why a glass wall was put between them during the meeting, he said it was done "for security reasons". He had added that Pakistan had allowed Jadhav's meeting with his mother and wife purely on "humanitarian grounds".

The roads leading from and to the Foreign Office building have been closed to traffic ahead of the meeting.

Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May.

For him, the treatment meted out to Jadhav's mother and wife by the Pakistan authorities was "unacceptable".

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.

Jadhav, an in-service Indian navy officer had illegally crossed into Pakistan from Iran and confessed to have been tasked by Indian intelligence agency to damage China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and fan unrest in Balochistan and parts of Pakistan.
