ISLAMABAD - Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother are meeting the convicted Indian spy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after arriving in Islamabad on Monday morning via a commercial flight.

Jadhav's mother, Avanti, and wife, Chetankul, made a stop at the Indian High Commission prior to the meeting with the spy, Foreign Office (FO) Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said.

The meeting is expected to be 30 minutes long, but may be extended upon the family's request, the FO spokesperson said.

Avanti and Chetankul Jadhav are accompanied by Indian deputy HC JP Singh and three Indian foreign ministry officials, according to Indian media reports.
