Across glass pane, Kulbhushan Jadhav meets wife & mother; physical contact barred
Across the glass window but even then it was a meeting between former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav with his mother and wife on Monday in Pakistan foreign office.
It need be mentioned that Jadhav was arrested and subsequently convicted on charges of espionage by a military court in Pakistan.
Jadhav’s family travelled to Islamabad on a commercial flight and will return to Delhi the same day.
Earlier today, Pakistan said that it has granted India consular access to Jadhav even as Indian officials countered the claim.
The two sides conversed through a speaker telephone, present on both sides of the glass barricade.
Images that have been made available in the media show how the conversation is happening between mother,wife on one side and Jadhav on the other.
Two other officials – presumably one Indian and the other Pakistani – are also seen standing around the meeting spot.
One of them appears to be JP Singh, India’s Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan. >
