Awais Sheikh, the Pakistani lawyer of slain Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, has told police that the armed men who abducted him and his son were Pashto-speaking.
Awais Sheikh, the lawyer of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, who was kidnapped in Lahore on Wednesday, has been freed.
Indian national Sarabjit Singh`s family members will return to India tomorrow to seek advice on his treatment in the wake of a deterioration in his condition, Sarabjit`s lawyer Awais Sheikh has said.
Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh had spoken of a threat to his life from a fellow prisoner after the execution in India of Afzal Guru but Pakistani authorities failed to provide him adequate security.
Sarabjit Singh, an Indian national on death row, is all set to be released by the Pakistani government, his lawyer Awais Sheikh says.
Pak court has sought a reply from Interior Min regarding failure to release of foreign prisoners, including 33 Indians, who had completed their jail terms.
Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh is hopeful that his fresh mercy petition will get a "favourable decision" from Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari.
