New Delhi/Islamabad, December 24: Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife and mother will reach at the Islamabad airport on Monday to meet the Indian prisoner who is on death row in Pakistan, the Pakistan Foreign Office said on Sunday.
They will arrive at the Islamabad international airport by a commercial flight and will leave the same day after the meeting, the foreign office further added.
India’s deputy high commissioner JP Singh will accompany the visitors to the meeting.
“India informs that the mother and wife of Commander Jadhav will arrive by commercial flight on 25 Dec and leave the same day. Indian DHC in Islamabad will be the accompanying diplomat,” Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal tweeted Saturday night.
Several media reports said that Pakistan had earlier asked India to convey the plan of Jadhav’s family at the earliest otherwise it would become difficult for them to arrange a meeting
Separately, Faisal had said that the meeting would take place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its photo and video footage would be issued.
The mother and wife of Jadhav were being provided with a meeting with him in the light of “Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds,” he had said.
Pakistan on December 20 issued a visa to Jadhav’s wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him.
