Pakistan to release 146 Indian fishermen on January 8: FO

India said a juvenile, Hasnain, whose nationality was verified by Pakistan, was repatriated on Monday through the Attari-Wagah border.

According to Dawn online, this was confirmed to the daily by a senior National Security Division official.

"The meeting was good. Ajit Doval's tone and tenor was friendly and positive".

While Pakistan claimed that its decision to allow Mr Jadhav's family to travel to Islamabad to meet him was a humanitarian gesture, India has slammed Pakistan for violating mutual understandings, asserting that Mr Jadhav appeared coerced and under considerable stress during the tightly-controlled interaction.

"But when seen together, it becomes clear that both sides are secretly working to mend fences", the daily said. The official also told the Pakistani newspaper that he had been briefed about the meeting.

Gen Janjua had on Thursday met with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at his Jati Umra residence in Raiwind, which lasted five hours, and included discussions on matters of national security, relations with Pakistan's neighbouring countries and terrorism.

India has also slammed Pakistan of disregarding cultural and religious sensibilities of family members under the pretext of security. He was awarded death sentence by a military court on April 10 this year for reportedly working for India's external intelligence agency, Research and Analytical Wing or RAW, and being involved with espionage and sabotage in Pakistan.

The Foreign Office said that the step of giving the list of prisoners was consistent with the provisions of the Consular Access Agreement between Pakistan and India, signed on May 21, 2008. New Delhi on May 8 moved the International Court of Justice which on May 18 asked Islamabad not to execute Jadhav till the court decided on the plea by India.
