Sarabjit Singh, the Indian on death row in Pakistan, is a few "formalities away" from being freed, Jehangir Badr, visiting secretary-general of the Pakistan People's Party, has said.

"Some formalities are to be completed between the two governments to pave the way for Sarabjit's freedom on humanitarian grounds. I say this on the basis of discussions at the top level of the Pakistan government," Badr, leader of the house in the Pakistan senate, said on Saturday.
