Jadhav's family to meet him shortly

Kulbhushan Jadhav meets wife mother from behind glass

They are seen with Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, who apparently accompanied the women to the meeting and was allowed to be present at it.

Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.

Kulbhushan's family, which travelled to Islamabad to meet him, would return shortly, as the meeting ended.

He said Pakistan has concrete evidences against Kulbhushan Jadhav of his involvement in subversive activities in Balochistan and Karachi.

Islamabad defended its stance of not granting diplomatic access to Jadhav, insisting he is a serving officer of the Indian navy and entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out subversive acts. TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city.

"I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture", he was heard saying in the video which was played several times before the Foreign Office briefing. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the ministry.

Faisal said Pakistan had hoped to make the family members available to media but that India objected, insisting journalists be barred from speaking to them.

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

The roads leading from and to the Foreign Office building have been closed to traffic ahead of the meeting.

Pakistan has announced it would issue photos and a video of the meeting and also allow the family to interact with media, if India agrees.

A military court sentenced Jadhav to death in April for espionage and terrorism against Pakistan.

For him, the treatment meted out to Jadhav's mother and wife by the Pakistan authorities was "unacceptable". The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.
