(Web Desk) – Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother is under consideration as India made a request in April to allow Jadhav’s parents to meet the convicted RAW spy.
According to Radio Pakistan, Islamabad pointed out that the neighbouring country had retained strict restrictions for medical patients from Pakistan. FO spokesperson confirmed that the visa for Jadhav’s mother was being considered at the moment.
Jadhav was sentenced to death after confessing that he was a former Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) operative tasked to spread terrorism in Pakistan. He was arrested on March 3, 2017, in an anti-terrorism operation in Balochistan. International Court of Justice (ICJ) had stayed his death sentence till the final verdict.
