  • Live Updates After meet with family Pak releases Kulbhushan Jadhav video alleges he tried to'destabalise country

Pakistani officials say the meeting has been allowed "purely on humanitarian grounds" and special arrangements have been put in place at the foreign ministry where the interaction will take place.

Jadhav has filed an appeal with Pakistan's army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, to seek clemency, which is still pending. "We are just waiting to see them, so that we will feel the same joy that they felt while meeting him". Before the meeting, the security check of the family was performed. The communication between them was through an intercom device.

TV footage showed Jadhav's mother Avanti and wife Chetankul entering the ministry building's Agha Shahi Block, accompanied by India's deputy high commissioner JP Singh and a Pakistani woman official.

He alleged that Jadhav was sentenced to death due to his involvement in terrorism.

A new video featuring Jadhav was released to the media by the foreign office after the meeting ended.

The security of twin cities was tightened on Monday upon arrival of the mother and spouse of Indian death row spy Kulbhushan Jadhav at Benazir Bhutto Islamabad Int'l Airport. "It would have been consular access had the Indian diplomat spoken to Jadhav", Faizal explained, adding the Indian request for a possible consular access was with Pakistan and "would be taken up at an appropriate time".

Police and paramilitary security forces, including sharpshooters, were deployed at the ministry to deal with any untoward security situation, they said. The video was shown during a press conference which followed immediately after the 30-minute meeting between Jadhav and family. "I have been treated with dignity and honour and in a very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities", Jadhav said, in the video. The request for a meeting with the mother had been pending since April 2017.

Jadhav was at the ministry before his family arrived.

It also called for the electoral tribunal "to transparently and fully review any challenges filed by political parties". Violent protests erupted across the country, in which Amnesty International said at least 14 people had been killed.

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".

Islamabad has conveyed to the ICJ, which is based in The Hague, that it would not grant New Delhi consular access to Jadhav.The ICJ is likely to start hearing on India's plea early next year.

An Indian national, Kulbhushan Jadhav has been languishing in a Pakistani jail ever since his arrest previous year over allegations that he is a spy for the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), India's premier external intelligence agency.

India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
