Indian external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin tweeted on Monday that Pakistan had handed over belongings of Indian spy Sarabjit Singh to the Indian Mission in Islamabad.

Akbaruddin in his tweet said Pakistan has handed over 36 items belonging to Sarabjit. The Indian mission will make the arrangements to send the Sarabjit’s belongings to his family in India.



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.

He was responsible for death of so many even india Gov agree he was a spy. Him and his colleagues should be caught and hanged till death that will send the strong message to india that stop meddling in pakistan affairs.
