The Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi has issued visas to convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife, the Foreign Office said on Wednesday. Addressing a weekly media briefing in Islamabad, Faisal said, "Let me assure you that the Commander (Jadhav) is under no threat of immediate execution and his mercy petitions are still pending".

Reports in the Pakistani media said India's Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh would fly to India to bring Jadhav's mother and wife to Pakistan for the meeting. Pakistan had initially offered a meeting between Jadhav and his wife on "humanitarian grounds".

The official said although the meeting was allowed by Pakistan on purely humanitarian grounds, the gesture will help initiate peace process with India.

Police say Cabrera also tried to pry the officer's fingers off the door with one hand as he steered the auto with the other. Police said he admitted that he and his fiance were doing heroin and cocaine in the vehicle before Cusack woke him up.

Faisal said, "The Indian side subsequently also requested that the mother may accompany the wife". "However, the subsequent Indian behaviour, trying to use the listing of these groups to malign Pakistan forced Pakistan to suggest a comprehensive list - of all terrorist groups irrespective of their ideology, religion and geography etc". "We await Indian decision in this regard".

High-ranking military and Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials met on Tuesday afternoon to decide details of the Jadhav family's visit.

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