New Delhi: Former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who was leading efforts during her term to get consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav who is lodged in a Pakistani jail, on Thursday met the family of the former naval officer.

"Kulbhushan Jadhav's family came to see me today. I wish them all the best," she tweeted on Thursday.

Former Foreign minister had been in close touch with Jadhav's family during her tenure in the external affairs ministry and closely worked with officials and the legal team to get consular access to Jadhav in Pakistan.

She was also one of the first to welcome the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) recent verdict, restraining Pakistan from executing Jadhav. "I wholeheartedly welcome the verdict of International Court of Justice in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav. It is a great victory for India," Swaraj had tweeted.
