Kulbhushan Jadhav meets family, mother thanks Pakistan

Kulbhushan Jadhav meets family, mother thanks Pakistan

Rogue nation Pakistan, which still enjoys the MFN (Most Favoured Nation) status from India, thanks to our soft political leadership over the years, allowed Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother to meet him, but through a glass wall.

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

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.

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

"I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture", Jadhav, who appeared to be reading a script in front of him, said in the video. It was an open meeting, we are looking forward to a statement from Jadhav's family, Kale added.

Pakistan Foreign Office later released pictures of Jadhav talking to his wife and mother from behind a glass screen. "They thanked us before leaving", Faisal said. The Pakistani media had earlier reported that the Pakistan government has granted consular access after denying the same for 22 times in a row.

From Pakistan's side, Foreign Office Director India Dr Fareha Bugti was present at the meeting. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city. The wife and mother greeted media persons with a namaste after arriving at the ministry but did not respond to their questions.

He said he was involved in "terror activities" and was "face of Indian terror on Pakistani soil". It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry. Police and paramilitary security forces, including sharpshooters, were deployed at the MoFA to deal with any untoward security situation, they said.

The Pak Military Court had sentenced Kulbhushan to death, but the matter is pending at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which already stayed his execution.

Islamabad defended its stance of not granting diplomatic access to Jadhav, insisting he is a serving officer of the Indian navy and entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out subversive acts.
