However, Janjua contended Jadhav was not covered under a bilateral agreement on consular access as he was a "spy".

Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua categorically expressed her views to Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale, during a meeting in Islamabad, reports Radio Pakistan.

"The fact that India isn't given consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav clearly proves the point that the charges over which death sentence is awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav are false and fabricated", it said.

A Pakistani military court this month ordered the punishment for Jadhav, after he was accused of espionage and sabotage activities in Karachi and Balochistan.

As per the appeal system in Pakistan, a death row convict has to move an appellate court within 40 days of pronouncement of the verdict.

He said that the Indian spy had been visiting Pakistan regularly since 2003, and was carrying a genuine Indian passport under a fake Muslim name, Mubarak Hussain Patel.

Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, during an operation in Mashkel area of Balochistan. The appeal was filed under Pakistan Army act section 133 (B) seeking to go to the Court of Appeals.

India also asked for consular access to Jadhav "for the 16th time".

Bambawale told the Pakistani foreign secretary that Jadhav's mother had expressed a desire to meet him.

"Pakistan was also requested to facilitate visas for the mother and father of Jadhav".

Categorically dismissing the charge that Jadhav was a spy, India has maintained that he was kidnapped by Pakistani authorities from Iran where he had legitimate business interests. "They have applied for necessary visas with the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi".

This is the second time that high commissioner Bambawale has met Janjua since the sentence was announced.
