The meeting started at 2.18 p.m., according to the Foreign Office. Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh, who accompanied Jadhav's family, was seen watching the reunion from a distance.

Foreign Office Director India desk Dr Fariha was also present at the meeting, which was videographed.

Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammed Faisal tweeted images showing Jadhav speaking to his mother Avanti and wife through an intercom with a glass panel separating them.

Pakistani authorities have said the meeting was allowed "purely on humanitarian grounds", but it did not allow one-on-one meeting between Jadhav and his family. Jadhav's wife and mother later left for the Indian High Commission before leaving for India.
