Islamabad: Pakistan on Friday said it will allow convicted Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet his wife and mother on December 25.
Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April on charges of espionage and terrorism.
The International Court of Justice in May had halted his execution on India’s appeal.
Jadhav has been allowed to meet his wife and mother on December 25, Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said.
During his weekly news briefing, the spokesman said a staff member from the Indian High Commission will also be present during the meeting.
Earlier on November 10, Pakistan had agreed to allow his wife to meet him.
India has been pressing Pakistan to grant a visa to Jadhav’s mother, Avantika, on humanitarian grounds.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Sawraj had recently discussed Jadhav’s case with Pakistani High Commissioner to New Delhi Sohail Mahmood. PTI
