Islamabad, Dec 25: The mother and wife of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav met him at the Pakistan Foreign Office here, but with a glass panel separating them and spoke to them through an intercom. The Pakistan Foreign Office released photos of Jadhav, who is on death row, meeting his family after a gap of 22 months.

The meeting started at 2.18 p.m. and was still in progress, according to the Foreign Office. Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh, who accompanied Jadhav’s family, was seen watching the reunion from a distance.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammed Faisal tweeted images showing Jadhav speaking to his mother Avanti and wife through an intercom with a glass panel separating them.

Pakistani authorities have said the meeting was allowed “purely on humanitarian grounds”, though it did not allow one-on-one meeting between Jadhav and his family.

Pakistan foreign ministry spokesperson Mohammad Faisal told media, “It was a humanitarian meeting, it was not consular access. The Indian diplomat JP Singh was present and could see the meeting but was not allowed to meet, we extended the meeting by 10 minutes on request of Jadhav.”

After meeting with Kulbhushan Jadhsv his family has left for Indian High Commission.

However, a New video of Kulbhushan Jadhav has been released by Pakistan foreign ministry in which he says ‘I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture.’
