Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May.

India feels today's meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and his family was as much an image-building exercise as a tacit message from Pakistan to New Delhi, and so represents a "major climbdown".

"The next hearing in Jadhav's case in the International Court of Justice is scheduled soon".

'Can you imagine what a mother, who last saw her son two years ago, must have felt when allowed to meet him from across a glass, ' he asked.

He said Pakistan has concrete evidences against Kulbhushan Jadhav of his involvement in subversive activities in Balochistan and Karachi. He said Jadhav has been kept in comfort here while showing a medical report to the media persons. "Jadhav is a spy and terrorist".


Pakistan government on Monday granted consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav, after at least 22 denials.

Pakistan has deployed security and traffic personnel within and outside the FO in view of the meeting.

Kulbhushan Jadhav has been detained in Pakistan for 22 months now and on death row in Pakistan. It was not clear whether the confession was extracted under duress, but in a video statement he Jadhav said "I have been treated with dignity and honor and very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities".

Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh was present at the meeting between Jadhav and his family, which will last 30 minutes. Special security passes were issued for those visiting the Foreign Office, the officials added. "This was conveyed to Indian High Commission categorically", he said. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
