  • Kulbhushan's wife and mother

Prior to the meeting, Pakistan had also permitted media interaction with Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife following their meeting in Islamabad, and had also offered to issues to Indian journalists for coverage.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal shared the pictures of Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife on Twitter, saying "The mother and wife of Commander Jadhav sitting comfortably in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan".

The exact time of the meeting is not immediately known but officials said it would be around midday or early afternoon.

Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies. Jadhav spoke to his family members through an intercom.

This information was shared by Pakistan Foreign Ministry to Geo Tv.

Pakistani officials insist Jadhav has confessed before the country's military court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency "to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities" against Pakistan.

Jadhav's mother and wife left India on Monday accompanied by an official of the Union Ministry of External Affairs. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city.

On the question why a glass wall was put between them during the meeting, he said it was done "for security reasons".
