Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh is accompanying them. He said the visit was granted in accordance with Islamic customs despite Jadhav's involvement in "acts of terrorism".
Earlier Monday, foreign minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif told a Pakistani media channel that Pakistan has granted Indiaconsular access to Jadhav since an Indian diplomat will be accompanying the prisoner's wife and mother. The meeting started at around 1.35 pm and lasted about 45 minutes. The Pakistan foreign office spokesperson reiterated that the meeting does not mean any change in Pakistan's stance regarding Jadhav.
This information was shared by Pakistan Foreign Ministry to Geo Tv.
Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 a year ago after he reportedly entered from Iran. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the ministry.
Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies. Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city.
Faisal said Pakistan had hoped to make the family members available to media but that India objected, insisting journalists be barred from speaking to them. Special security passes have been issued for those visiting the Foreign Office, the officials added.

Jadhav, an in-service Indian navy officer had illegally crossed into Pakistan from Iran and confessed to have been tasked by Indian intelligence agency to damage China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and fan unrest in Balochistan and parts of Pakistan.
