Humanitarian gesture: Pakistan allows wife to meet Kulbhushan Jhadav

Humanitarian gesture: Pakistan allows wife to meet Kulbhushan Jhadav

In a major development indicating that Pakistan has somewhat relented, Islamabad on Friday evening announced that has it has "decided to arrange a meeting" in Pakistan of imprisoned former Indian naval officer Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife "purely on humanitarian grounds".

Pakistan's foreign office in the national capital said it would allow Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet his wife.

A note verbale has been sent in this regard to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad on Friday, PTV said in a tweet.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistan Army court on charges of spying.

A statement from Pakistan said Jadhav had "confessed" in a Pakistani court "that he was tasked by RAW to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities aimed at destabilizing and waging war against Pakistan".

On May 18, ICJ ordered Pakistan to halt the execution of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav until a final decision in the proceedings. Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.

The General Secretary PIPFPD said that ideally, both Pakistan and India should release all the fishermen, women from their custody. However, India has always maintained its firm stand that he was kidnaped from Iran wherever he had business interests after retiring from the prestigious Indian Navy.

Meanwhile, Jadhav is believed to have filed a second mercy petition with Pakistani Army Chief Qamar Bajwa.

India won a stay against the death sentence at the International Court of Justice.

The Indian government had moved a visa application for his mother to go and meet Jadhav in Pakistan. By an order of June 13, 2017, the President of the ICJ had fixed September 13, 2017 and December 13, 2017 as the respective time limits for the filing of a memorial by India and a counter-memorial by Pakistan.
