  • Jadhav's family to meet him shortly

Kulbushan Sudhir Jadhav, clad in a blue jacket, met with his wife and mother at Pakistan's foreign ministry in the capital, where they spoke through a glass barrier, pictures issued by the ministry showed.

The meeting, which a foreign office spokesman said lasted around 40 minutes, is the first time Pakistan has granted access to the family of Jadhav, who was arrested in the southwestern province of Balochistan past year.

"It was around 35 minutes long".

He added that media crews will be able to cover the arrival and departure of Jadhav's wife and mother at the ministry and Pakistan has agreed to honor India's request not to allow any media interaction with the visitors, the official added. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city.

The mother and wife of Jadhav were being provided with a meeting with him in the light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds", Faisal had said.

Kulbhushan's family, which travelled to Islamabad to meet him, would return shortly, as the meeting ended. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.

TAKE TWO: Mariah Carey to return to New Year's Rockin' Eve
Carey wound up walking around the stage without singing in what can only be described as a meltdown. Carey should be a huge ratings lure, because last year's performance was so widely discussed.

The video message played by the Foreign Office during a press conference after Jadhav's meeting with his family was recorded before their meeting, officials said.

Police and paramilitary security forces, including sharpshooters, were deployed at the ministry to deal with any untoward security situation, they said. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.

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

Pakistani authorities allowed an Indian national sentenced to death for spying to see his family for the first time since his arrest, a rare and highly-anticipated meeting arranged amid tight security in Islamabad.

Pakistani officials insist Jadhav has confessed before the country's military court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency "to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities" against Pakistan.

"It was a humanitarian meeting, it was not consular access".
