Pakistan permits the meeting of wife and mother of Commander Jadhav with him, as a humanitarian gesture, on the birthday of the Father of the nation, Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
Kulbhushan Jadhav meeting his mother Avanti and wife Chetna on Monday and after he had enquired about the health of his father, as the former Indian Navy officer on Death Row started talking about how he was sent by Indian intelligence agencies to spy, his mother told him, “Khare bola (Speak the truth)”.
The next 35 minutes, Jadhav gave, what India says, were “tutored statements” about his involvement in espionage. In between, Chetna broke down while Avanti kept asking him about his health and how he was being treated as he looked “unwell and tired”, and not his “usual self”, they told Indian officials.
