New Delhi: The family of Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is on death row in Pakistan for alleged spying, met external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi on Tuesday, a day after their controlled interaction with him in Islamabad.

Jadhav’s mother and wife met Swaraj at her residence. Senior ministry officials were also present, according to sources.

They had met Jadhav on Monday at the heavily guarded building of the Pakistani foreign office. The meeting, through a glass screen, came after The Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) asked Pakistan in May to stay the 47-year-old Indian national’s execution.

The external affairs ministry is yet to give any official reaction to the meeting between Jadhav and his family.
