Kulbhushan Jadhav meets family; Pakistan says granting permission a humanitarian gesture

Prime News, International (Islamabad), December 25:- Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian sentenced to death in Pakistan, met his wife and mother today, more than a year after he was arrested by the Pakistani army and accused of spying. India has rejected Pakistan’s claim that since the Indian Deputy High Commissioner is accompanying the family, it constitutes “consular access”. Kulbhushan Jadhav’s family landed in Islamabad via Dubai around noon.

Jadhav’s mother Avanti Jadhav and wife Chetankul Jadhav were accompanied in the meeting by Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh. This was Jadhav’s first meeting with his family after his arrest by the Pakistani army in March last year. Islamabad sat on the family’s request for months. They will leave right after the meeting that could last up to an hour. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
