Pakistan allows Kulbhushan's meeting with wife, mother on Dec 25

Pakistan's foreign office had earlier this month said it will allow Jadhav to meet his wife. "On this we asked Pakistan to give visa to the mother as well", Sushma Swaraj, India's Minister of External Affairs said.

The minister asked Pakistan to allow a diplomatic officer of Indian High Commission to accompany Jadhav's family in Pakistan. Swaraj said Pakistan had earlier agreed to give a visa only to Jadhav's wife but India requested for a visa for his mother too. As India took the case to International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May, Pakistan even told the United Nations court that "Pakistan doesn't see the merit in a state which sends a spy and is seeking access to a tool for terror". He said India has been warned of this decision and meeting was expected on December 25. According to media reports in Pakistan, the mother and wife of Jadhav who has been branded an Indian spy would meet him at a jail in Pakistan on December 25.

On April 10 this year, a Pakistani military court convicted Jadhav of his charges and sentenced him to death.
