Islamabad: The mother and wife of a former Indian Navy officer, accused of espionage, have met him at the office of Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad.

Jadhav was sentenced to death on charges of espionage, Pakistan has been saying that Jadhav is an Indian navy officer who has confessed to spying. India maintains that he was kidnapped.

The mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav held a meeting with him after Pakistani government accepted India’s request.

Both family members of Jadhav  landed at the Islamabad airport earlier today from where they were taken to the office of Indian High Commission. After a brief stay, the mother and wife went to Foreign Office amid tight security.

After the meet, Jadhav’s mother Avanti Jadhav thanked Pakistan’s foreign office for arranging the meeting with her son.

Shortly after the family of Jadhav met him, Mushaal Malik, wife of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik, in a video statement has said that while Pakistan was allowing alleged Indian spy Kalbushan Jadhav to meet his wife and mother on humanitarian grounds India has “kept her and her daughter from meeting Malik for the past three years.”
