Kulbhushan Jadhav's Mother Wife To Meet Him In Pakistan On December 25

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj even wrote a "personal letter" to the advisor to the prime minister of Pakistan on national security and foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz, asking for approval of visa application of Jadhav's mother so that she may travel to Pakistan.

"I have spoken to Mrs. Avantika Jadhav mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav and informed her about this", tweeted Swaraj.

"Pakistan has agreed to facilitate the visit of mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav and assured us of their safety, security and freedom of movement in Pakistan".

The Ministry of External Affairs accepted Pakistan's offer of allowing Jadhav's wife to meet him, but put forward three conditions.

Kulbhushan Jadhav - the alleged Indian spy - has been awarded a death sentence by a Pakistan military court on espionage charges.

While, the Pakistan Foreign Ministry said that a staff member from the Indian High Commission will be present at the meeting.

Islamabad says he was apprehended by law enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016, in Balochistan after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan from Iran. However, the International Court of Justice ordered a stay in his execution.

Jadhav had filed an appeal with the Army chief to seek clemency, which is still pending. Jadhav's sentencing had evoked a sharp reaction in India.

Pakistan was ordered by the court to not execute the prisoner until further order. Consular access to Jadhav had been repeatedly denied since his arrest on grounds that the case was related to spying.

The much awaited meeting between retired Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav and his family finally appears to be moving in the right direction.
