Pak to give visa to Jadhavs mother, wife: Swaraj

External Affars Minister Sushma Swaraj confirmed the news on Twitter, "Pakistan has agreed to facilitate the visit of mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav and assured us of their safety, security and freedom of movement in Pakistan".

It was announced that Pakistan will give a visa to Jadhav's mother Avantika too, the application of which was pending since many months.

India had demanded that during the stay of Kulbhushan's wife and his mother in Pakistan, they should not be questioned and harassed.

In a rare move, Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April on charges of espionage and terrorism.

According to media reports in Pakistan, the mother and wife of Jadhav who has been branded an Indian spy would meet him at a jail in Pakistan on December 25.

Foreign Office says an Indian diplomat will also be present during the meeting.

Pakistani security agencies on March 24, 2016 apprehended an "on-duty RAW agent" from Balochistan. However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

India had approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May to halt his execution, which was granted on New Delhi's appeal. India strongly denied the allegation. Jadhav's sentencing had evoked a sharp reaction in India.

"Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure that Jadhav is not executed pending the final decision in these proceedings", ordered Judge Ronny Abraham, president of the court, as he announced the decision.

This meeting will be the first contact between 47-year-old Jadhav and his family after his arrest.
