Pakistan to consider Indian request for visa of Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother

Pakistan to consider Indian request for visa of Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother

The issue was raised once again when Pakistan's High Commmissioner to India Sohail Mehmood during his first meeting with Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was asked to take a message for his government that the mother of Jadhav should be provided with a visa to meet with her son. However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

"The government has taken a decision on humanitarian grounds to allow Commander Kulbushan Jadhav to meet his wife in Pakistan", Faisal had earlier said, while adding, "A note verbale to this effect has been dispatched to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad on Friday (yesterday)".

To this end, India's written response was submitted to registrar Philippe Couvreur of the ICJ. Pakistan had recently made the offer which it had described as "humanitarian". However, there was no confirmation available from the Indian side.

During his weekly media briefing, Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said Pakistan was awaiting India's response on the offer. However, the UN's top court on May 18 stopped Pakistan from executing the death penalty. According to sources, India has requested that Jadhav's mother be allowed to meet him first. India has warned Pakistan of consequences and damage to bilateral ties if the execution, which it described as "premeditated murder", was carried out.

It was also conveyed that such provocations also causing loss of innocent civilian lives are potentially risky to invoke an unbearable response.

Kulbushan Jadhav alias, Hussain Mubarak Patel, was a serving commander of the Indian navy and involved with India's premier intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), when he was arrested by law-enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016.

Mr Jadhav has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani Army court on charges of espionage and sabotage while India has dismissed the allegations against him and had demanded consular access. It has said he was apprehended after he "illegally crossed over" into the country.
