Pak people not against Sarabjit`s release: Sister

The people of Pakistan are not averse to the release of condemned prisoner Sarabjit Singh, his sister Dalbir Kaur said today while urging Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to intervene for an early of the captive.

Attari (Punjab): The people of Pakistan,
including politicians and bureaucrats, are not averse to the
release of condemned prisoner Sarabjit Singh, his sister
Dalbir Kaur said today while urging Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh to intervene for an early of the captive.
Kaur returned home today after spending a month in the
neighbouring country during which she met Sarabjit twice.

She said she met media and top bureaucrats in Pakistan
over the issue.

She clarified she never demanded release of Pakistani
gunman Ajmal Kasab, involved in Mumbai attacks, for the
release of her brother.

She also favoured release of all innocent Pakistan
nationals in jail for straying over the border.
Sarabjit`s sister urged the Indian government for an
early release of 80-year-old Pakistani virologist Khaleel
Chishti in jail for the last 20 years.

She could meet her brother, allegedly involved in bomb
blasts in Pakistan, only after the Lahore High Court
intervened and granted her permission to visit him in
Kotlakhpatrai jail.
