Pak grants visas to Jadhav's mother, wife

Jadhav's mother and wife will meet him in Islamabad

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.

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.
