Indian Deputy High Commissioner to bring Jadhav’s mother, wife for meeting

Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh will fly to India tonight to bring Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother and wife to Pakistan for December 25 meeting. 

According to details, Jadhav’s family will come to Pakistan along with Singh. 

Yesterday, Pakistan issued visas to the convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife and mother to facilitate their meeting with the death-row inmate in Pakistan – most likely on December 25.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal took to Twitter to break the news. “Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi issued visas to the mother and wife of Commander Jadhav to visit Islamabad to meet him today,” he said.

An official at the foreign ministry said Jadhav’s mother and wife would be probably arriving this week for the meeting. “India will let us know about the schedule. We will arrange security for them,” he told The Nation.

The official said although the meeting was allowed by Pakistan on purely humanitarian grounds, the gesture will help initiate peace process with India. “These gestures do help the greater causes. Pakistan is always hopeful of resuming talks with India for peace in the region,” he added.

Jadhav was arrested last year in Balochistan province for spying and stoking terrorism and sectarianism in the country. Islamabad also handed over dossiers to the UN regarding Jadhav’s confessional statement.

Jadhav has filed a mercy petition to Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa to spare his life on “compassionate grounds”. He can still file another appeal to President Mamnoon Hussain if the army chief rejects his plea.
