Islamabad, Dec 8 (IBNS) : Pakistan has allowed Indian national Kulbhsuan Jadhav's wife and mother to meet him in the prision in their country on December 25, Geo News reports said on Friday.

Quoting Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman  Mohammad Faisal, the report said that a staff member from the Indian embassy will also be present during the meeting.

According to the Pakistan Army, Kulbhusan Sundir Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel was arrested on March 3, 2016, through a counter-intelligence operation from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage actives in Pakistan.

Pakistan claimed that Jadhav, a former officer of  the Indian Navy, confessed to his crimes in a recorded video statement televised by the army last year following his arrest.

On April 10, 2016,  a military court of Pakistan sentenced Jadhav  to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi.

In reaction to the move, Pakistan’s relations with neighbour India tensed, and India approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to hear the case.

On May 18, 2017, ICJ ordered Pakistan to halt the execution of Jadhav until a final decision in the proceedings.
