In August, Indian foreign ministry formally requested Islamabad to facilitate return of Sarabjit’s clothes and other belongings – retained by jail authorities in Lahore – to his family.
Sarabjit, an Indian agent, was arrested for terrorism in 1991 and sentenced to death but it was delayed indefinitely. He was attacked by some inmates in April this year. He succumbed to his injuries on May 1, 2013.
