On Saturday in Lahore a district and session court acquitted two suspects accused of killing an Indian spy Sarabjit Singh inside the Kot Lakhpat jail in April 2013, reported through reliable sources.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Moin Khokar issued directives to release Amir Tanba and Mudasir Munir from custody after entirely witnesses withdrawn their statements. The suspects were fellow prisoners of Singh and had supposedly tortured him to death.

Singh had suffered severe injuries in the head after being attacked by bricks and other sharp weapons following which he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Lahore’s Jinnah Hospital. After lying in a exhausted state for five days, Singh was pronounced dead by a medical board comprising senior neurosurgeons.

The Lahore police had registered a case at Kot Lakhpat police station under Section 324/34 {planned attempted murder in group} under the Pakistan Penal Code on the complaint of the superintendent Kot Lakhpat jail, Waqar Sumra.

The Indian foreign ministry has requested Pakistan to conduct an investigation into the attack on the 49 years old Sarabjit. Singh’s sister Dalbir Kaur had demanded that Pakistan should hold an inquiry as to how Sarabjit’s security was compromised and he was subsequently attacked with bricks and iron rods.

“If the attack was planned by the government itself then there is no need for any inquiry. But if Sarabjit was assaulted without the knowledge of the authorities then an inquiry is needed definitely,” she said.
