Islamabad (Agencies): The mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian spy sentenced to death for espionage in Pakistan, will reach Pakistan on Saturday.
Pakistan’s National Security Committee cleared visas for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother Avantika Jadhav and his wife. High-ranking military and Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials met on Tuesday afternoon to decide details of the Jadhav family’s visit.
Last week, the foreign ministry offered a visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife on humanitarian grounds and at New Delhi’s request, extending this offer to cover Jadhav’s mother as well.
The Foreign Office (FO) confirmed that the visa applications of Jadhav’s family were being processed. “Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds. Being processed,” Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted on Saturday.
