Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife, mother to meet him in Pakistan on December 25

India and Pakistan have been in talks to arrange the meeting for weeks now.

Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother and wife will meet him in Pakistan on December 25, Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said on Friday. Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by Pakistan on charges of espionage.

An official from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad will also be allowed to be present at the meeting, reported India Today. India and Pakistan have been in talks after Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said on November 10 that it had decided to arrange a meeting between Jadhav and his wife “on purely humanitarian grounds”.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that the government of Pakistan has tole the Indian government that they will provide visa to Jadhav’s wife and his mother Avantika Jadhav, reported ANI.

On November 23, Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India had responded positively to Pakistan’s offer. Kumar had said India wanted Jadhav’s mother to accompany his wife and asked Pakistan to ensure the safety and security of the two women. It also told Islamabad that they should not be questioned or harassed during their stay.

The International Court of Justice in May had stayed Jadhav’s execution and told Pakistan to provide Jadhav consular access. Islamabad has not complied with the directive so far. A month later, the judicial body asked India to submit its arguments by September 13. Pakistan has time till December 13 to respond.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
