It is not clear what prompted Islamabad to allow Jadhav's wife to meet him in Pakistan, the Express Tribune reported.

According to a report by PTV, Pakistan's state broadcaster, officials said that they were acting on humanitarian grounds and informed that a meeting will be arranged between Jadhav and his wife.

"A Note Verbale to this effect has been sent to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, on Friday", he said.

Pakistan government has made a decision to allow former Indian naval officer, Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is on a death row for espionage, to meet his wife on humanitarian grounds.

In a big win for Jhadav, his family and all the Indian, ICJ stayed the execution of alleged spy till it reached its final verdict. It repeated its charge that Jadhav is aRAW agent and was apprehended by Pakistan law enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016 after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan.

Jadhav has filed an appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to seek clemency, which is still pending.

"Jadhav confessed before a Magistrate and the Court that he was tasked by RAW to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities aimed at destabilizing and waging war against Pakistan", Pakistan said.

The ICJ has asked Pakistan to submit its response or memorial by December 13 so that the court can start further proceedings in the case. However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

Pakistan has repeatedly denied consular access to Jadhav even on humanitarian grounds citing the reason that it does not apply to cases related with spies. Pakistan will be producing its memorial next month.

In May this year, India moved the International Court of Justice against the death sentence without giving him a fair trial.
