Guarantee that Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife, mom won't be harassed': India accepts Pakistan's offer on alleged spy, but with conditions

Kulbhushan Jadhav

"We have also sought sovereign guarantee from the Government of Pakistan to ensure their safety, security and well-being and that they shall not be questioned, harassed or interrogated during their visit and stay in Pakistan".

He informed that India has sought sovereign guarantee from the government of Pakistan to ensure safety, security of both Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife. Pakistan is yet to respond to New Delhi's request that Jadhav's mother too be allowed to meet him.

"In our response, we have conveyed that Jadhav's wife would like to travel with her mother-in-law for the meeting", he added.

Further, the MEA has also said they should not be questioned or harassed, and also that a diplomat from the Indian High Commission in Pakistan should be permitted to accompany them throughout their stay, NDTV reported.

Kulbushan Jadhav meeting: India seeks Pakistan's sovereign guarantee for former navy officer's wife and mother

Talking to The Dependent, from an undisclosed location, undisclosed communication means, undisclosed device, to an undisclosed individual, Jadhav, who is on death row following the verdict from an anti-terrorism court, said that Lahore High Court's (LHC) decision to release Saeed should put that beyond any doubt. However, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday also confirmed receiving a new Indian request of sending Jadhav's mother with his wife and said it was "being considered".

The demand that an Indian diplomat be allowed as an escort is different from the request for consular access.

Asserting that the offer of such a meeting does not absolve Pakistan of the violations of the Vienna Convention on consular access, he maintained that the charges against Jadhav were "farcical" and "concocted". In April 2017, a Pakistan military court found him guilty of "espionage and sabotage" and sentenced him to death.

India had appealed against the capital punishment to Jadhav at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). After India approached the ICJ, a 10-member bench on May 18 restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till adjudication of the case. But Pakistan's offer also took India by surprise.
