“Earlier Pakistan had agreed to give visa only to the wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav. On this we asked Pakistan to give visa to the mother as well. We also raised concern about their safety and security in Pakistan”.
Pakistan has agreed to facilitate the visit of mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav and assured us of their safety, security and freedom of movement in Pakistan, Swaraj said in a another tweet.
She also informed Jadhav’s mother Avantika Jadhav regarding this.
A Pakistan military court has granted death sentence to Jadhav in April, accusing him of spying, involvement in espionage and terrorist activities, which India repeatedly denied.
But Pakistan claims security forces arrested him from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran.
Following this India moved to the International Court of Justice in Hague and in a bigger relief for Jadhav’s family and all Indian, ICJ stayed the execution of the former Navy officer till it reached its final verdict.
