Convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav confessed to his family that he was involved in terrorism in Pakistan when he met his mother Avanti Jadhav and wife Chetna in Islamabad earlier this week.

Indian media reported on Thursday, Jadhav “greeted the two women by acknowledging that he was, as alleged by Pakistan and contested by India, indeed an Indian spy and had engineered a spate of terror attacks”.’

According to The Times of India, the family did not expect this reaction from Jadhav to their first meeting in almost two years. The report added that his mother stopped him from confessing to his crimes.

Jadhav met his mother and wife in Islamabad on December 25 -- their first meeting since his arrest from Balochistan last year on charges of espionage and terrorism.

He was tried by a military court and awarded death penalty. The chief of army staff has endorsed his death penalty.

The Indian government has taken the matter to the International Court Justice, which has stayed his execution.


Usman Khan | 3 years ago | Reply @Vineeth: What proof u have against Hafiz Saeed than. All you have are confession of Ajmal Qasab... Ryt. Why that confession should be considered as proof as this isn't?
HN | 3 years ago | Reply @ Raj in which country is it allowed for criminals to meet with family openly and freely? Even is most so called civilized countries, jails have the same kind of security for both inmate and the relatives. India are Pakistan are not friendly nations. Its every right of Pakistan to make sure of security arrangements. And Jadhav already knows he is going to get hanged. What else can make him under pressure?
