Pakistan offers Kulbushan's wife to visit husband on humanitarian grounds

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Kulbhushan Jadhav from restive Balochistan province on 3 March last year after he reportedly entered from Iran

"The Government of Pakistan has made a decision to arrange a meeting of Commander Kulbhushan Jhadav with his wife, in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds", foreign office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said in a statement.

In its list, the Pakistan foreign office had said the Indian prisoners included "52 civilians and 494 fishermen".

In a major breakthrough, Pakistan today allowed Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife to visit him in jail. There were rumours that the two countries discussed the issue in a recent meeting between Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Sawraj and the newly appointed Pakistani High Commissioner to New Delhi Sohail Mahmood.

Kulbhushan Jhadev, a serving Commander of the Indian Navy, working with Indian Intelligence Agency RAW was apprehended by Pakistan law enforcement agencies previous year after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan. A secret Pakistan military court, which tried Jadhav on charges of espionage and subversive activities in Pakistan, sentence him to death this year in April.

Former Texas A&M star Martellus Bennett to return to New England Patriots
For the time being, his departure leaves the Packers with two tight ends, Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers , on their roster. Bennett has already been linked to the Patriots, whom he helped win February's Super Bowl in his lone season with New England.

India has appealed to the court to impose emergency measures for Jadhav's execution to be suspended until the legal battle in Hague concludes, while also accusing Pakistan of violating the Vienna Convention by failing to provide him with consular access and for being in breach of worldwide human rights law. On October 11, Pakistan had designated former Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani to the ICJ to be its Judge in Jadhav's case.

India has also handed over to Pakistan an appeal by Jadhav's mother, initiating a process to get his conviction overturned.

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

He had filed the first petition with the Military Appellate Court, which has been rejected, according to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) of the Pakistani army. In September, India presented its written pleadings, also known as memorials, at the ICJ as per its directive.
