Pakistan grants visas to Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife, mom

Kulbhushan Jadhav Pakistan issues visas to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother, wife

Earlier this month, Pakistan had given Jadhav's mother and wife permission to meet him on December 25, in the presence of an Indian high commission official.

The visas for Jadav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad were granted by the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi. Islamabad also allowed them to be accompanied by an Indian embassy official as requested by New Delhi, The Hindu reported.

The Foreign Office sources said that adequate security measures will be taken for complete safety of Kulbhushan Jadhav's family.

Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs' spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal confirmed the development of Twitter. India rejected the allegations that Jadhav had any connection with RAW. "We await further details from India in this regard".


Pakistan on Saturday had announced that it had received the visa applications and was processing them. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

On the issue of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Foreign Office spokesperson said Indian spy's mother and wife were being provided with a meeting in light of Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds. He was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court.

On Thursday, Pakistan directed its high commission in New Delhi to issue visas to Jadhav's wife and mother.

Former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 in the southwestern province of Balochistan for entering Pakistan on fake identity documents to plot subversive acts. The execution was, however, halted by the International Court of Justice on India's appeal. Pakistan earlier this week filed a counter-memorial in the ICJ.
