Ensure Kulbhushan Jadhav wife's safety, India tells Pakistan

In a statement, the Pakistan foreign minister had said, "The government of Pakistan has chose to arrange a meeting of Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife, in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds".

Reacting to Pakistan's announcement that Jadhav's wife will be allowed to meet him purely on "humanitarian grounds", the MEA official said, "There was a long-standing request from the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav to visit Pakistan and meet her son". But, ICJ stayed his execution on India's appeal since then he is in the imprisonment of Pakistan.

India has also asked that a diplomat from the Indian High Commission in Pakistan shall be allowed to accompany them at all times, including during the meeting.

Kumar said that India has also sought the sovereign guarantee from Pakistan government to ensure safety, security of both. India has also made it clear that Jadhav's wife will be accompanied by his mother too, whose request for a visa is still pending with the Pakistan Foreign office. Ministry of External Affairs, on Thursday addressed a press conference regarding Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national who is on death row in Pakistan over alleged charges of terrorism and spying for India's intelligence agency RAW.

Last Saturday, Pakistan's foreign ministry had said it had received a response from India on its offer to arrange a meeting between Jadhav and his family.

This is a significant demand as so far, Pakistan has refused to allow Jadhav to contact any Indian government official, either during his trial or after sentencing.

He indicated that India will go ahead with the case against Pakistan.

Islamabad had, in March 2016, announced the arrest of Jadhav from Balochistan. The MEA spokesperson also used the opportunity to state that Pakistan was not off the hook.

"While the government hopes that Pakistan would facilitate a visit by the wife and mother of Mr. Jadhav, we are determined to pursue all measures with full vigour so as to secure the final release of an innocent Indian".
