Pakistan released a second propaganda video of Kulbhushan Jadhav on Thursday.
In the video, Jadhav says his mother was happy to see him healthy. He adds though that he saw fear in the eyes of both his mother and wife.
Jadhav adds in the video that his mother was humiliated on the flight to Islamabad. That there was an Indian diplomat with her who shouted continuously at her.
It is unclear though how Jadhav, who is currently in custody in Pakistan, could have known that.

Jadhav's mother Avanti and wife Chetnakul had flown to Islamabad via Dubai on Christmas day to meet Jadhav.
Pakistan said the meeting between Jadhav -- Pakistan accuses him of spying for India and has sentenced him to death -- was a "humanitarian gesture".
But all hell broke loose between the two countries after the meeting.
India accused Pakistan of mistreating Avanti and Chetnakul. It said the women were asked to remove their shoes, change their clothes, and remove their bindis and mangalsutras.
India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj later said in Parliament that the women were made to look like widows. And that when Jadhav first saw his mother without her mangalsutra, the first thing he asked her was, "Baba kaise hain".
