Pakistan considering India's response on Jadhav

18 Novembre 2017

India has accepted Pakistan's offer to arrange a meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav, sentenced to death by a military court for alleged involvement in spying, and his wife, and requested that his mother too should be included in the meeting.

India has requested Pakistan to allow Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav, held by Pakistan's security agencies, to meet his mother along with his wife. "Indian reply to Pakistan's humanitarian offer for Commander Jadhav received & is being considered", he tweeted.

It is important to mention here that Jadhav's mother had already applied for a Pakistani visa with the Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi, in anticipation of meeting her convicted son. There has also been no response to her petition to grant clemency to her son.

On November 10, Pakistan had granted permission to the convicted Indian spy to meet his wife.

Islamabad, however, denied that the issue came under discussion. "It is a sensitive matter for the family and the two countries", said the official, explaining that India has taken note of the fact that Pakistan has kept the content of the letter confidential and so far has not revealed it to the media on the Pakistani side.

The Pakistan Army chief is now considering a Jadhav's mercy petition after his request for clemency was turned down by a military appellate court.

Commander Jadhav alias, Hussain Mubarak Patel, a serving Commander of the Indian navy, who was working with India's premier intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), was arrested by law-enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016 after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan.

Pakistan's offer is being viewed as an attempt to counter India's argument at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague that Jadhav was not granted consular access in violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

Three of the accused were found to have past criminal records, said the spokesperson. He was now on 42-day parole from Modern Jail Faridkot.
