Pakistan grants visas to Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife, mom

Faisal said, "The Indian side subsequently also requested that the mother may accompany the wife".

Pakistan has offered a visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother on humanitarian grounds and at New Delhi's request.

Pakistan's High Commission in New Delhi has issued visas to convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife to visit Islamabad to meet him.

An official at the foreign ministry said Jadhav's mother and wife would be probably arriving this week for the meeting.

Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said that the first phase of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would be completed by 2020 while the entire project would be functional by 2030.

Faisal earlier had tweeted, "Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds". It said that Jadhav is not an ordinary person as he had entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out sabotage activities.

Reports in the Pakistani media said India's Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh would fly to India to bring Jadhav's mother and wife to Pakistan for the meeting. "We await further details from India in this regard".

However, the International Court of Justice on May 18, 2017, stayed the hanging after India approached it against the death sentence. Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 past year after he reportedly entered from Iran. According to New Delhi, Jadhav, a retired Indian Navy official, was abducted from Iran. Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the ICJ in May.
