Pakistan is considering the Indian request to allow Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother to meet the convicted spy along with his wife who was earlier offered on humanitarian grounds.

In the reply received by the Islamabad’s Foreign Office , the Indian authorities wrote that they cannot send Jadhav’s wife alone and request the visa permission for his mother as well.

FO spokesperson Mohammad Faisal tweeted, “Indian reply to Pakistan's humanitarian offer for commander Jadhav [has been] received and is being considered.”

Sources told that India said the visa request of Jadhav’s mother was filed at the Pakistan High Commission. His mother also deserves to meet the son on humanitarian grounds, the reply said.

Pakistan had earlier offered India a meeting between the convicted spy and his wife on humanitarian grounds. The government had offered India to organise a meeting between the spy and his wife after repeated denial to grant consular access to the convicted spy since his arrest in spring 2016.

India and Pakistan have filed explanations sought by the international court in The Hague and the court is to proceed with the case.

Jadhav had confessed to the charges in a video which was posted online by Pakistan Army days after his arrest last year. He revealed that he was tasked by Indian authorities to sabotage CPEC and fan unrest in Pakistan.

Jadhav was held by law enforcement agencies hours after he entered Pakistan from Iranian port Chabahar. The convicted spy is an in-service Indian navy officer who was recruited by Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of India.
