A 22-year tragic story has finally ended with Sarabjit Singh’s death at Jinnah Hospital in Lahore. Sarabjit, 49, was an Indian prisoner who was convicted of terrorism charges. He was held responsible for the 1990 serial bomb blasts in Lahore and Faisalabad in which 14 people lost their lives.

Girls praying for Sarabjit's recovery.Sarabjit and his family repeatedly claimed that he was a farmer who was a victim of mistaken identity and had unknowingly crossed the international border under the influence of alcohol. Since then he has spent nearly 22 years in prison in Pakistan.

On the evening of 26th April, Sarabjit was attacked by bricks and blade by his fellow prisoners. Following the attack, he was admitted to Jinnah Hospital in Lahore. The doctors announced on Tuesday that Sarabjit was brain dead and only a miracle can save his life.

Sarabjit’s family was permitted visas and allowed to visit him. The family stayed in Pak for three days and returned a day before Sarabjit’s death. Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur requested the Pakistani government to allow his brother be flown abroad for higher treatment but the request was rejected, on the grounds that his body is in no state for traveling. Dalbir Kaur has devoted her entire life to a struggle to bring her brother back home.

It’s been reported that the Indian government is in continuous talks with the Pakistani government to bring Sarabjit’s body back to India.
