Amritsar: Relatives of 16 youths from Punjab sentenced to death in Sharjah for killing a Pakistani man performed prayers at the Golden Temple here today.

They told the media that they suspected "foul play" in the case and appealed to the Centre to do the needful to secure their release.

Families of all the 16 on death row had arrived here. Seventeen Indians were awarded death sentence and 16 of them were belonging to the state.

Lakhbir Kaur, sister of Kashmir Singh, "I came here to pray for saving my brother's life. I hope there would be a miracle that would bring my brother India safe and sound". Seventeen Indians were sentenced to death on March 29 by a Sharjah shariah court for allegedly killing a Pakistani and injuring three others in an attack last year.
