Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said the presence of Indian diplomat during the scheduled meeting between Jadhav and his family did not mean he was given Indian consular access, Geo News reported.

The meeting will last between 15 minutes to an hour and the two women will be allowed to speak to the media if they wish to, the Dawn said, citing diplomatic sources.

Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.

Jadhav's family is flying to Islamabad via the UAE. This was the first meeting between Jadhav, who was convicted of espionage in Pakistan, and his family, since his arrest on 3 March, 2016. Faisal said Jadhav was the "face of Indian terrorism, especially in Pakistan".
