Sonepat: The sister of Sarabjit Singh, the Indian national imprisoned in a Pakistani jail, has cited the acquittal of Pakistani microbiologist Mohammed Khalil Chishti to appeal to the neighbouring country`s government for her brother`s release.
Dalbir Kaur`s appeal comes ahead of Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik`s visit to the country. She said she had already met External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid requesting an audience with Malik.
Dalbir, who was accompanied by Sarabjit`s daughter Swapandeep, said that just as rights groups in India had campaigned for Chishti`s release so should their Pakistani counterparts ramp up efforts to have Sarabjit set free.
