Islamabad: Around 21 months after he was arrested, Kulbhushan Jadhav on Monday met his wife and mother in Islamabad.
His wife and mother arrived in Islamabad earlier today by a commercial flight and leave by the evening.
Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the International Court of Justice in May. The ICJ halted his execution on India’s appeal pending the final verdict by it.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province on March 03 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran. India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.

Geo news mentioned sources as saying that Jadhav’s family will go to the Indian High Commission before returning to India via Oman.
