In a significant development, Pakistan on Friday said it will allow the wife and mother of convicted Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet him in prison.

Jadhav has been allowed to meet his wife and mother on December 25, Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said.

Last month, Pakistan foreign office had said that it will allow Jadhav to meet his wife.

After the Pakistan government made a decision to allow both the mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national who was sentenced to death on espionage charges, to meet him, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Friday said that she has informed his mother about this. "Government of Pakistan has conveyed that they will give visa to the mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav", Swaraj tweeted.Pakistan has assured India of their safety, security and freedom of movement in that country, she said.

Edison International (EIX) registers pull back to 17.3 RSI
The utilities provider reported $1.10 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $0.89 by $0.21. Perhaps, that suggests something about why 90.65% of the outstanding share supply is held by institutional investors.

India had urged Pakistan to also permit Jadhav's mother to accompany the wife. The Indian authorities have also been communicated in this regard, he added.

India has been pressing Pakistan to grant a visa to Jadhav's mother, Avantika, on humanitarian grounds. India says Jadhav, a former naval officer, was on business in Iran when he was kidnapped.

Pakistan claims that its security forces arrested him from restive Balochistan province on March 3 previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran. Jadhav's appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa seeking clemency is still pending.

The meeting comes after massive diplomatic efforts by External Affairs Ministry, which has been trying every trick in the bag to ensure the meeting between Jadhav and his family members. Jadhav's sentencing had evoked a sharp reaction in India.
