We study the multifragmentation phenomenon in heavy-ion collisions by varying the spatial constraint criterion in minimum spanning tree (MST) clusterisation procedure. Within the framework of isospin-dependent quantum molecular dynamics (IQMD) model, the role of isospin-dependent spatial constraint, i.e. iso-MST version, is investigated on different fragment observables in various isobaric pair of reaction systems varying in the entrance channel isospin (N/Z) content. The fragment observables such as persistence, gain, average yield of free nucleons, light and intermediate mass fragments are slightly sensitive to the isospin-dependent spatial constraint criterion particularly in heavier reaction systems. For a given isobaric pair of reaction systems, the fragment production, however, remains indifferent to isospin content of the colliding nuclei.
