After the meeting, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson reiterated that Jadhav is an Indian spy who was on a mission for espionage and terrorism in Balochistan and other areas.

Earlier, Foreign Office Spokesperson Mohammed Faisal tweeted a picture of Jadhav's mother Avanti and his wife seated ahead of the meeting, adding they were "sitting comfortably in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan".

Singh was not allowed to hear the family talk but could watch the entire meeting, scheduled to last 30 minutes but extended following a request from Jadhav and his mother.

Faisal said that since Pakistan has allowed Jadhav's family to meet him, India should also allow the families of detained Kashmiris to meet their relatives. "I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture", he was quoted as saying by ANI.

Jadhav's family arrived at the ministry of foreign affairs from the Indian high commission where his wife and mother halted for more than half an hour.

President, and he acted alone, without our knowledge". "Hey! Let me in", Jones' Omarosa said from the outside looking in.

"Media may kindly be kept at a distance to ensure security of the family members and avoid any harassment to them", he quoted from a letter the foreign ministry received from the Indian government ahead of Monday's meeting. Security is paramount. Indian Government was informed about the glass wall. "There is a list of 15 names we have given to India asking for details on them".

Pakistan also backtracked from its foreign minister's remarks from Sunday that Indian diplomat JP Singh's presence at the meeting could be called "consular access".

Jadhav has filed an appeal with Pakistan's army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, to seek clemency, which is still pending. "When it was held under such tight security and close relatives are separated by a glass screen, it has little meaning", she said.

Aziz did not specify the contents of the confession done under Section 164 unlike the video confession of March which was telecast on TV.

The spy also confessed to supporting the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and other groups, especially in the attack on the Mehran Naval Base, various radar installations and the Sui gas pipeline attack, all of which were directly funded by Indian intelligence agency Research Analysis Wing, Dr Faisal said. His mercy petition is still pending. According to the version of the processes put forth by Aziz, the FGCM proceedings started on 21 September, 2016, second proceeding took place on 19 October, 2016, the third proceeding on 29 November, 2016 and the final fourth proceeding on 12 February, 2017. We don't have anything to hide.
