Allow mother to visit Jadhav first: India tells Pakistan

Share

Pakistan on Saturday says that it is pondering over a request from the Indian government to allow the mother of Indian RAW Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav to accompany her daughter-in-law to meet her husband, who is on death row.

India has requested Pakistan to allow Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav, held by Pakistan's security agencies, to meet his mother along with his wife.

India has expressed reluctance in sending Jadhav's wife alone to Pakistan and insisted that his mother's application is also processed. However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. He revealed that he was tasked by Indian authorities to sabotage CPEC and fan unrest in Pakistan.

Foreign Office South Asia Affairs and South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Director Dr Mohammad Faisal shared a tweet saying, "Indian Reply to Pakistan's Humanitarian offer for Commander Jadhav received & is being considered".

It is not clear what was the core reason behind the surprise move of Islamabad to allow Jadhav's wife to meet him, however, there were rumours that the two countries discussed the issue in a recent meeting between Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and the newly appointed Pakistani High Commissioner to New Delhi Sohail Mahmood.

Pakistan's offer is being considered as a positive development in Indian circles. On May 18, a 10-member ICJ bench had restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till it adjudicates on the case. India's request has come in response to an earlier offer made by Pakistan to allow the spy to only meet his wife.

Jadhav's mother, it should be recalled, had earlier submitted a petition against her son's death sentence and had also pleaded to the federal government to intervene for his release. Jadhav has filed an appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to seek clemency, which is still pending.

Jadhav had confessed to the charges in a video which was posted online by Pakistan Army days after his arrest a year ago.
