Family of Convicted Indian Spy Arrives in Pakistan to See Him

Jadhav will be brought to the ministry for the meeting, and India wants Pakistan to bar journalists from speaking with the family members for security reasons.

Pakistan on December 20 issued visa to Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him. "So to that degree, it is a step forward".

Shortly after the family of Yadav landed in Pakistan capital Islamabad, Mullick said in a video message: "A Kashmiri has no right to meet his wife and child; he is being treated worse than a proclaimed terrorist". "But they could not touch him, hold him or hug him and they were able to see him only through a glass partition", he added.

"I think that was emotional but especially painful for them since the man is officially been sentenced to death". Jadhav's family had a brief stop at the mission again before they headed to the airport to catch a flight to India via Dubai. "In that sense, it was very disappointingly unhumanitarian spirit in which it was conducted".

The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to brief the media.

He asserted that the main concern was the way Jadhav looked. "Once they come back, we will ask what happened there and will worry about the rest later", said an elated Subhash Jadhav, the brother of navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav (47). "This shows the hatred and enmity Pakistan harbours towards India".

Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday shared images where mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav could be seen meeting the detained Indian prisoner.

Claiming that Yasin Malik has not been allowed to meet his family for last three years, Mishal said Pakistan arranged a meeting of convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife and mother but India was not allowing Yasin Malik to meet his wife and daughter.

Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh was also accompanying the family.

Pakistan Rangers, Anti-Terrorism Squads (ATS) and sharp shooters were deployed at the roof tops, in view of the meeting.

The neighbouring country has not let any stone unturned to promote hatred amongst the citizens of both countries by highlighting the negative side of Jadhav's meeting with his wife and mother.

The wife and mother greeted the media persons after arrival but refused to respond to their questions.

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