"Jadhav is the face of Indian terror in Pakistan". It was not clear whether the confession was extracted under duress, but in a video statement he Jadhav said "I have been treated with dignity and honor and very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities".
Sachin Kale, Kulbhushan's friend, told CNN-News18 that there was global pressure on Pakistan and that they were forced to organise this meet. Jadhav, who seen in a blue-coloured suit while meeting his family, was wearing a sweater in the clip raising several questions.
"We had already told them that you will be able to meet him but a security barrier would be there he said". Jadhav spoke to his family members through an intercom.
Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh is accompanying them.
This information was shared by Pakistan Foreign Ministry to Geo Tv.
Here is one of the photos, which clearly shows the women believed to be Kulbhushan's mother wearing what appears to be a sweater and a dupatta that nowhere matches what she was shown wearing just some time ago. Pakistan had agreed that a diplomat from the Indian high commission in Islamabad would accompany the visitors.More news: Man planned Christmas Day terror attack in San Francisco
Jadhav was at the ministry before his family arrived. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the foreign ministry.
The video message played by the Foreign Office during a press conference after Jadhav's meeting with his family was recorded before their meeting, officials said. After a brief stay, the mother and wife went to Foreign Office amid tight security.
Pakistan, which turned the meeting into a media spectacle in a desperate bid to improve its image on the global arena, could not find courage to allow Kulbhushan to meet his family in private or even touch or hug each other. On 20th of this month, Pakistan had issued visa to them to visit Islamabad to meet Jadhav.
The 47-year-old was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the ICJ in May. India had approached the International Court of Justice against his execution which was later halted by ICJ pending the final verdict.
Pakistan claims that its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from restive Balochistan province on March 3 previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran.
