Jadhav's mother and wife met Swaraj at her residence. Senior ministry officials were also present, according to sources. They had met Jadhav yesterday at the heavily guarded building of the Pakistani foreign office. The meeting, through a glass screen, came after The Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) asked Pakistan in May to stay the 47-year-old Indian national's execution.

The external affairs ministry is yet to give any official reaction to the meeting between Jadhav and his family.
