“GOVERNMENT SHOULD ENSURE JADHAV’s DEATH SENTENCE NOT CARRIED OUT” : SARABJIT’s SISTER

Dalbir Kaur, the sister of Sarabjit Singh, who died in a Pakistan jail in 2013, has said that India should approach the International Court of Justice and ensure that the death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistani establishment is not carried out.  “Our government should take appropriate steps. They should appeal in the international court of justice and seek stay,” Kaur told PTI over phone while reacting on the Pakistan army court’s verdict.  India should take every necessary step to ensure that Jadhav’s death sentence is not carried out, she said.  “Even if I assume for a minute that Jadhav was an agent, still does he deserve death sentence. There are many Pakistani nationals lodged in our jails who are charged with serious crimes, does this mean they too should be given the same treatment. The 2000 Red Fort attack case convict was a Pakistani national, but was he hanged?” she asked.  About Jadhav, she said, “Just because he is an Indian, he has been given death sentence. This shows the hatred and enmity which Pakistan harbours towards India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should speak about this to  his Pakistani counterpart.”   Having lost her brother four years back in Pakistan, Kaur said she could fully understand what Jadhav’s family must be going through at this hour.  “I am with the family. They should immediately meet the prime minister. My full support is with Jadhav’s family and I can accompany them if they go and meet the PM,” she said. Rediff.com ; 10th. Apr,17
