Pakistan Government to Allow Kulbhushan Jadhav's Wife to Meet Him

Pakistan to arrange meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and wife on 'humanitarian grounds'

"The Government of Pakistan has chose to arrange a meeting of Commander Kulbhudhan Jhadav with his wife, in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds", spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said in a statement on Friday.

"He (Jadhav) acquired premature retirement from the Indian navy and since then the government has nothing to do with him", said Vikas Swarup, a spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, requesting Pakistan to grant counsellor access to the "arrested Indian citizen".

In a sudden move, Pakistan on Friday announced said that it will allow Indian national Kulbhudhan Jadhav to meet his wife on humanitarian grounds, according to several media reports.

Jadhav was arrested in Balochistan, Pakistan, over charges of alleged involvement in espionage and subversive activities for India's intelligence agency - the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

Redesigned iPad with Facial Recognition Slated for 2018
Would Face ID and a new bezel-less display be enough on their own to upgrade? Now the iPad may be having something of a comeback. The iPad Pro 3 with Face ID is said to have a screen size that's similar to that of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

The press release uploaded on Pakistan's foreign ministry website states that Jadhav has "confessed" in a Pakistani court "that he was tasked by RAW to plan, coordinate and organise espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities aimed at destabilizing and waging war against Pakistan".

The Pakistan government has so far not responded to a request made in April by Jadhav's mother, Avantika Jadhav, to meet her son.

Pakistan claims to own caught Jadhav from Balochistan province on three March 2016, when he reportedly entered from Islamic Republic of Iran.

To this end, India's written response was submitted to registrar Philippe Couvreur of the ICJ. Pakistan will be producing its memorial next month. On October 11, Pakistan had designated former Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani to the ICJ to be its Judge in Jadhav's case. Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.
