Sarabjit Singh was reportedly attacked with bricks by two death row prisoners who apparently wanted to take revenge for carrying out terrorist activities in Pakistan.
According to media reports, the condition of the Indian prisoner remained highly critical amid reports that he is brain dead. Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur told newsmen at Wagah border that she was returning to India to take care of Sarabjit’s children. She demanded that Pakistan should hold an inquiry as to how Sarabjit’s security was compromised and he was subsequently attacked with bricks and iron rods.
Sarabjit’s lawyer Awais Sheikh said he would file a fresh petition in Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking its permission to allow the Indian doctors to be part of the medical board which is treating Sarbjit Singh. He rebutted media reports that Sarabjit is brain dead.
