Repatriate Sanaullah & other foreigner prisoners; plea in SC
New Delhi: A petition was on Tuesday filed in the Supreme Court seeking direction to the Centre to "repatriate" foreign and Pakistani prisoners, including Sanaullah Ranjay who was injured in a scuffle with another inmate in a Jammu jail, and those already having spent over 15 years in detention here.
The petition also sought repatriation of all the mentally challenged prisoners, who are not wanted in any case in India but are lodged in different jails here, to their respective countries without any delay.
Seeking direction to repatriate Sanaullah to Sialkot in Pakistan, the petition filed by Jammu and Kashmir Panthers Party Chief Bhim Singh, said as per an counter affidavit filed by the Centre in August last year, he had completed the sentence awarded to him by different courts in India in most of the cases and his repatriation would be in the "interest of universal justice and equity."
"It is submitted that he (Sanaullah) has completed more than 18 years in jail with a disciplined life. He has been musical band master at home and also inside the jail...The entire history of the trials would establish that he has completed life imprisonment also," the petition said.
Sanaullah, 52, was injured in a scuffle with another inmate in the high-security Kot Balwal jail in Jammu and was rushed to a Chandigarh hospital in an air ambulance.
The assault had came a day after the death of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh who was brutally attacked by fellow inmates in Lahore`s Kot Lakhpat jail.
