Pakistan allows wife to meet Kulbhushan Jhadav — Humanitarian gesture

Pakistan allows wife to meet Kulbhushan Jhadav — Humanitarian gesture

It is not clear what prompted Islamabad to allow Jadhav's wife to meet him in Pakistan, the Express Tribune reported.

The meeting would be arranged "in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds", the statement said without giving further details.

A Note Verbale, a diplomatic note that is drafted in third person and is unsigned, with this regard has been sent to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.

Consistent Indian efforts to make Pakistan follow United Nations procedures yielded results as Pakistan has announced that it has agreed to arrange a meeting of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife in Pakistan.

In a big win for Jhadav, his family and all the Indian, ICJ stayed the execution of alleged spy till it reached its final verdict.

He had filed the first petition with the Military Appellate Court, which has been rejected, according to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) of the Pakistani army.

India has also handed over to Pakistan an appeal by Jadhav's mother, initiating a process to get his conviction overturned.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested him from restive Balochistan province March 3 past year after he reportedly entered from Iran. In September, India presented its written pleadings, also known as memorials, at the ICJ as per its directive.

New Delhi has repeatedly sought access to the convicted spy but Islamabad denied the permission on the ground that consular access in cases related to spies were not applicable.

Pakistan had earlier said that Jadhav purportedly "confessed" to being a spy forRAW in a video release. Islamabad, however, all of New Delhi's requests, claiming that since the Indian national faces espionage charges, Pakistan is not obligated to grant India consular access to him.

In a reaction to the move, Pakistan's relations with neighbour India tensed, and India approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to hear the case.
