Kulbushan Sudhir Jadhav, clad in a blue jacket, met with his wife and mother at Pakistan's foreign ministry in the capital, where they spoke through a glass barrier, pictures issued by the ministry showed.
It was the first time that Jadhav was meeting his family since his arrest in March, and Pakistan portrayed it as a humanitarian gesture to mark the birthday of the country's founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah. Jadhav's family is expected to leave Pakistan soon after the meeting.
"Indian High Commissioner J.P Singh could only see but was not allowed to listen or speak during the meeting" said the spokesperson.
The mother and wife of Jadhav were being provided with a meeting with him in the light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds", Faisal had said. The video was shown during a press conference which followed immediately after the 30-minute meeting between Jadhav and family.
