ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry says Islamabad on “humanitarian grounds” has allowed the wife of an Indian naval officer who faces death penalty for espionage and sabotage to meet with him.
In a statement late Friday, the ministry said Pakistan has informed the Indian High Commission about its decision.
The development came months after the wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav requested Pakistan to allow her to meet with him.
Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 and has been convicted and sentenced to death by a military tribunal.
