The source said that the tone of the letter was positive and indicated New Delhi's desire to avail the offer.
Responding to Pakistan's offer to allow Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet his wife, India has requested that his mother be permitted to accompany her as well. India has not officially confirmed whether it has responded to Pakistan's offer. In a sudden move, Pakistan had last week informed India that it would be willing to allow a meeting between the "self-confessed spy" and his wife "on humanitarian grounds". The Indian side had pursued various legal remedies available under the Pakistan Army Act 1952 in the case, and applied for visas for Jadhav's parents through the External Affairs Ministry.
In a tweet, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said: "Indian reply to Pakistan's humanitarian offer for Commander Jadhav received & is being considered". This decision is also believed to be taken by Pakistan to counter and dispel India's propaganda against the country on worldwide forums and at the global Court of Justice (ICJ).
Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April on charges of espionage and terrorism. India has warned Pakistan of consequences and damage to bilateral ties if the execution, which it described as "premeditated murder", was carried out. On May 18, a 10-member ICJ bench had restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till it adjudicates on the case.
It was also conveyed that such provocations also causing loss of innocent civilian lives are potentially risky to invoke an unbearable response.
Commander Jadhav alias, Hussain Mubarak Patel, a serving Commander of the Indian navy, who was working with India's premier intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), was arrested by law-enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016 after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan.
