The meeting was scheduled for 30 minutes, but it was extended for 10 more minutes on the request of Jadhav and his family members, the spokesperson said.

"This is not their last meeting with him", he said, indicating that Jadhav would not be executed in the near future.

Kulbhushan's family, which travelled to Islamabad to meet him, would return shortly, as the meeting ended.

From Pakistan's side, Foreign Office Director India Dr Fareha Bugti was present at the meeting.

Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, was arrested on March 3, 2016, in a "counter-intelligence operation" from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan.

Islamabad defended its stance of not granting diplomatic access to Jadhav, insisting he is a serving officer of the Indian navy and entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out subversive acts. It was not known where he had been kept before being transported to the ministry.

India asked the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May to restrict Pakistan from executing Jadhav, arguing he was denied diplomatic assistance during what it called an "unfair trial". Television footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family after they arrived in the city.

Earlier Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife reached the Foreign Office from Indian High Commission along an Indian diplomat amid tight security.

Officials said all arrangements are in place for the meeting between Jadhav and his wife and mother, and sharpshooters were deployed at the sprawling FO building ahead of the meeting.

According to News 18, Jadhav would be meeting his family at the foreign office in Islamabad.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military court on charges of espionage and terrorism.

Pakistan has announced it would issue photos and a video of the meeting.

During the press conference, the spokesperson read out a statement repeating old allegations against Jadhav.
