A day before Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari arrives here for pilgrimage, the sister of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian national on death row in Pakistan, offered prayers on Saturday at the Dargah Sharif for his release.


"Blessings of Khawajaji brings President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari to the dargah Sharif and I am hopeful and confident that my brother jailed in Pakistan for the last 22 years will also be fortunate to have the same blessings of Khawajaji," Singh's sister Dalbir Kaur said.

Sarabjit's daughter Swapandeep was also present on the occasion.

Kaur said Benazir Bhutto had visited dargah and prayed for the release of her husband Zardari years ago and then when he was released, they had come here to thank Khawajaji.

"Now, I also pray to Khawajaji to get my brother released from a Pakistan jail and I will also come here again with my brother," Kaur told PTI here after offering a 'chadar' at the shrine.
