Pathankot mastermind caught on cam; Pakistan's sham humanity on Kulbhushan exposed

"The presence of Indian diplomat during the scheduled meeting between Jadhav and his family does not mean Jadhav has been given Indian consular access", said the FO spokersperson.

"This is not their last meeting with him", he said, indicating that Jadhav would not be executed in the near future.

Subramanian Swamy, speaking to CNN-News18, said Pakistan should have allowed one-on-one contact to Jadhav's family and the meeting should have been private.

India asked the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May to restrict Pakistan from executing Jadhav, arguing he was denied diplomatic assistance during what it called an "unfair trial".

Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, was arrested on March 3, 2016, in a "counter-intelligence operation" from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan. TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city. Special security passes have been issued for those visiting the Foreign Office, the officials added. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.

"The family members of Indian spy looked satisfied and they thanked Pakistan for the gesture" said Dr Faisal.

Pakistan, which turned the meeting into a media spectacle in a desperate bid to improve its image on the global arena, could not find courage to allow Kulbhushan to meet his family in private or even touch or hug each other.

Jadhav gave details of his meetings with his contacts in Pakistan and exposed the network which he was handling, according to his confessional statement, obtained by The Associated Press.

The Pak Military Court had sentenced Kulbhushan to death, but the matter is pending at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which already stayed his execution.

However, New Delhi has been maintaining that Jadhav, a retired Navy officer, was kidnapped from Iran where he had some business interest.
