After Jadha'v's meet with his family, Pakistan said that the issue of granting consular access to Jadhav will be decided on "at appropriate time".

Jadhav was arrested in March 2016, in Balochistan, Pakistan, over charges of alleged involvement in 'espionage and subversive activities for India's intelligence agency - the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)'.

This is a narrative that the Pakistani army has maintained, though Indian has maintained that Jadhav was kidnapped by a section of the Taliban in Iran and sold to the Pakistani army.
