25 December, 2017, 18:55
Pakistan on Monday said that it allowed the mother and wife of former Indian Navy official Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet him as a humanitarian gesture to mark the birthday of the country's founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah.
A video confession given by Mr. Jadhav was played before the press briefing by the Ministry.
Then, at 3:26 pm IST, Faisal tweeted out four photos purportedly showing Kulbhushan meeting his mother and his wife.
Coming on today's meeting, Faisal said Jadhav and his family have expressed gratitude to Pakistani officials for the meeting.
India has also handed over to Pakistan an appeal by Jadhav's mother, initiating a process to get his conviction overturned. "We permitted the Indian request purely on humanitarian grounds as in accordance with Islamic morals and teachings", he said, adding "many mothers have lost their sons" due to "Commander Jadhav's action at Indian behest". The Indian consular was told beforehand that he will be able to see the meeting and so he was allowed.
TV footage showed Jadhav's mother Avanti and wife Chetankul entering the ministry building's Agha Shahi Block, accompanied by India's deputy high commissioner JP Singh and a Pakistani woman official. "This was conveyed to Indian High Commission categorically", he said.
"Media may kindly be kept at a distance to ensure security of the family members and avoid any harassment to them", he quoted from a letter the foreign ministry received from the Indian government ahead of Monday's meeting. "Let me assure you that the Jadhav is under no threat of immediate execution", Faisal had said. After a brief stay, the mother and wife went to Foreign Office amid tight security.
Roads leading to the Constitution Avenue, on which MOFA is located, have been closed for traffic. Pakistan on 20 December issued visa to Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him.
