New Delhi, Nov 23 (IBNS): The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has asked Pakistan to allow Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been held in the neighbouring country over the charges with spying, to meet his wife along with the accused's mother.

While Pakistan is yet to grant visa to Kulbhushan's mother as the latter's wished, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday said they have conveyed to Pakistan that Kulbhushan's wife would like to accompany her mother-in-law to Pakistan.

"We have conveyed that the wife of Jadhav would like to travel along with her mother-in-law for the meeting." the MEA said. 

"We have also sought sovereign guarantee from the Government of Pakistan to ensure the safety, security and wellbeing of the wife and the mother of Mr. Jadhav and that they shall not be questioned, harassed or interrogated during their visit and stay in Pakistan.  We have further asked that a diplomat of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad shall be allowed to accompany them at all times, including during the meeting.," the MEA spokesperson added.

Pakistan Foreign Office months ago said that it was considering granting visa to Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother. The

Kulbhushan is presently locked up in Pakistan, where he is facing spying charges and has been sentenced to death, only to be stayed by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) following India's successful appeal.

His mother Avantika had made repeated pleas earlier, which went unreciprocated by the neighbouring country.
