'It will help him stay strong': Defence Minister on Kulbhushan Jadhav allowed to meet his wife

After Pakistan's decision to arrange a meeting between imprisoned Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav and his wife, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday said that this move will boost Jadhav's morale. Confirming Pakistan's announcement made on 'humanitarian grounds', Sitharaman assured that the Indian Government is taking all the necessary steps to bring Jadhav back. Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested last year on charges of spying and was sentenced to death by a military court earlier this year.
