Pakistan has handed over 36 items belonging to late Sarabjit Singh to the Indian Mission in Islamabad.

Indian external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin tweeted that they will make the arrangements to send the Sarabjit's belongings to his family, the Express Tribune reports.

Indian foreign ministry had requested Islamabad in August to facilitate return of Sarabjit's clothes and other belongings retained by the jail authorities in Lahore, the report added.

Sarabjit was an Indian spy, who was arrested for terrorism in 1991 and sentenced to death, but it was delayed indefinitely.

He was brutally attacked by some jail inmates in April 2013, and he succumbed to his injuries on May 1, 2013.
