family would not interact with the media.
Earlier Monday, foreign minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told a Pakistani media channel that Pakistan has granted India consular access to Jadhav since an Indian diplomat will be accompanying the prisoner's wife and mother.
Couple of FO officials will also be present during the meeting, and it may last for 30 minutes.
'Can you imagine what a mother, who last saw her son two years ago, must have felt when allowed to meet him from across a glass, ' he asked. Jadhav spoke to his family members through an intercom. Jadhav's family arrived at the MoFA from the Indian High Commission where they stayed for more than half an hour. TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city.
Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.
"I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture", he was heard saying in the video which was played several times before the Foreign Office briefing.
According to News 18, Jadhav would be meeting his family at the foreign office in Islamabad.
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 (ICJ) in May. Pakistan on 20 December issued visa to Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him. India had approached the International Court of Justice against his execution which was later halted by ICJ pending the final verdict. India claims the former Navy officer, who set up a business in Iran's Chabahar port after retiring from the force, was abducted and sold to Pakistan intelligence agencies by the Taliban.
