Pakistan gives India consular access to arrested spy Kulbhushan Jadhav

Christmas gift Kulbhusan Jadhav to meet mother wife in Pakistan on December 25

Pakistan in November said it is "considering" India's request to let Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother meet him, apart from his wife who has already received permission to visit the Indian death row prisoner. His mother and wife will be travelling to Dubai in a commercial flight from Dubai and will reach Islamabad today.

The Associated Press quoted a security official involved with arranging the meeting as saying it will be conducted in the presence of three Indian diplomats.

"India informs that the mother and wife of Commander Jadhav will arrive by commercial flight on December 25 and leave the same day". Faisal had earlier said that the meeting's photo and video foot-age will also be issued.

The mother and wife of Jadhav were allowed to meet him in the light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds", he added.

Kulbhushan Jadhav - the alleged Indian spy - was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of "espionage" and "terrorism" in April this year.

The AP, which said it has seen the mercy petition, reported Jadhav as writing that "I feel very shamed and I genuinely seek pardon of the acts and sins and crimes I have committed here against the nation and the people of Pakistan". The ICJ halted the execution, pending its verdict.

Pakistani authorities on Thursday said that the country was ready to permit media interaction with Jadhav's wife and mother.

Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, was arrested on March 3, 2016 in a "counter-intelligence operation" from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan.

"He (Jadhav) acquired premature retirement from the Indian navy and since then the government has nothing to do with him", said Vikas Swarup, a spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, requesting Pakistan to grant counsellor access to the "arrested Indian citizen".

Pakistan and India are longstanding bitter rivals in the region and have fought three wars since they gained independence in 1947. The suspect was said to be an officer of the Indian navy working for the covert agency to destabilize Pakistan.
