India has condemned Pakistan for its handling of the visit of the wife and mother of an Indian man on death row.

Foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar says Sudhir Jadhav’s family had been subjected to harassment when they arrived to meet him.

Jadhav, a former officer in the Indian navy, was arrested in March 2016 and convicted of planning espionage and sabotage.

India says Jadhav is innocent, arguing he was denied diplomatic assistance during his trial by a military court.

His wife and mother were allowed to meet him behind a glass window on Monday, eight months after he was sentenced to death.
