FO says some metallic object was hidden in shoes of Jadhav's wife

"All her jewellery etc were returned after the meeting", FO spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said. It is being investigated.

Sources say security staff could not remove the metallic object in half an hour, the lady was provided with another pair of shoes to meet her husband who is under arrest in Pakistan.

A day earlier, Jadhav met his mother and wife in Islamabad, their first meeting since his arrest from Balochistan previous year on charges of espionage and terrorism.

India Tuesday accused Pakistan of harassing the family members of convicted Indian spy Shri Kulbhushan Jadhav when they were permitted to visit him a day earlier.

The MEA also claimed that "from the feedback we have received of the meeting, it appears that Jadhav was under considerable stress and speaking in an atmosphere of coercion".

The Former Naval officer of Indian Navy, Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested in Balochistan and sent to conviction by the Pakistani Army previous year.


Even as the Opposition stands together in condemning Pakistan for insulting Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife, Samajwadi Party (SP) parliamentarian Naresh Agrawal on Wednesday justified the humiliation saying the alleged Indian spy was a "terrorist" for Pakistan.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Pravin Togadia today said the harassment of Kulbhushan Jadhavs mother and wife by the Pakistani authorities was an insult to the 50 crore women of India.

To save Jadhav, India moved the International Court of Justice, which ordered Pakistan in May this year to stay his execution.

Before the meeting, the two governments were in touch through diplomatic channels and had reached "clear understandings" on the meeting's modalities and format, the MEA statement said. Authorities also closed the roads into and out of the Foreign Office for the meeting as part of their strict security measures.

The mother and wife of former Naval Officer Kulbhushan Jadhav have recently met him in Pakistani Jail. Jadhav, who "looked tired", reportedly inquired about his father's health and said it was "nice to see them".

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "The manner in which the meeting was conducted and its aftermath, was clearly an attempt to bolster a false and unsubstantiated narrative of Jadhavs alleged activities". Upon reaching India, mother and spouse of Kulbhushan held meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Suraj, MJ Akbar, V K Singh and other top officials and briefed them about the meeting.
