How Pakistan kept a tight vigil on Jadhav's meeting with wife, mother

India claims the former Navy officer, who set up a business in Iran's Chabahar port after retiring from the force, was abducted and sold to Pakistan intelligence agencies by the Taliban.

Jadhav, in the video that was apparently shot before he got to meet his kin, also said that he had requested to meet his family members and that he was grateful to the Pakistan Government for letting that happen. Jadhav has been imprisoned in a Pakistani jail ever since his arrest past year.

The World Court ordered Pakistan in May to delay Jadhav's execution, and said Islamabad had violated a treaty guaranteeing diplomatic assistance to foreigners accused of crimes.

The wife (2L) and mother (L) of Kulbushan Jadhav leave after meeting with Jadhav at the Foreign Ministry in Islamabad.

The International Court of Justice instructed Pakistan to take all "necessary measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav was not executed pending a final decision by it, the ICJ had said.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 past year after he reportedly entered from Iran. "They played to the gallery and tried to befool the global community".

The calls came by way of a Santa tracking program run for more than 60 years by the North American Aerospace Defense Command. Trump fielded questions from children dialing into NORAD's phone line looking to see where Santa was on his journey.

Elaborating on the meeting, Faisal said an Indian diplomat was present during the meeting but was not allowed to speak or listen in to the conversation between the convicted spy and his family, and could only observe the meeting. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the ministry. "It has nothing to do with consular access", he added.

Pakistan released a picture of Jadhav's mother, Avanti, and wife, Chetankul, seated at a desk and speaking to him from behind a glass window.

The Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi issued visas to Jadhav's mother and wife on December 20. The wife and mother greeted the media after arrival but refused to respond to questions. The reply, which was submitted by the Foreign Office's Director, Fariha Bugti, also claimed that Jadhav's case did not fall under the purview of the Vienna Convention. "As far as I know there were no private messages exchanged, but let us except that something is better than nothing particularly if it turns out to be the first step in the positive direction and that's what we must hope for", Tharoor added. "It should be categorically registered", he added.

Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the ICJ in May.+ It is expected to hold another hearing in March or April.

On April 10, 2017, Pakistan sentenced the RAW agent to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi.
