Pakistan offers to arrange Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with his wife”

Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, sentenced to death in Pakistan for alleged spying, will be allowed to meet his wife on "humanitarian grounds", the Pakistan Foreign Office said today.

Pakistan has accused Jadhav of being an "on-duty RAW agent" who had contacts with banned organizations and was working on plans to break Karachi and Balochistan from Pakistan, and to sabotage the billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

India, which completely rejected Pakistan's charges, reputedly sought consular access to Jadhav.

After Jadhav was awarded capital punishment by a Pakistani military court in April this year, India challenged the verdict in the top United Nations court, accusing Islamabad of violating the Vienna Convention by failing to provide Jadhav with consular access which it said was in breach of worldwide human rights laws.

Earlier, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had written a letter to her Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz for grant of visa to Jadhav's mother, Avantika.

On April 10 this year, a military court in Pakistan convicted Jadhav and sentenced him to death. Pakistani officials said that there are still two forums of appeal left for Jhadav even if the army chief refuses his mercy appeal.

He was arrested in March 2016 on the espionage charges and Pakistan claimed the Indian national to be involved in "terrorist activities" in the restive Balochistan region.

Jadhav was held by law enforcement agencies hours after he entered Pakistan from Iranian port Chabahar.

According to the military, the Indian spy was provided with a legal counsel and a fair trial was carried out at the army court however, India approached International Court of Justice (ICJ) seeking halt to his sentence.

Although, India acknowledged that Jadhav had served in the Indian Navy but denied any connection with the government. Pakistan will submit its counter-pleadings in the case on December 13.
