The family of Sarabjit Singh, the convict who died after being attacked in jail in Pakistan, is sad at the death of Pakistani national Sanaullah Haq in similar circumstances.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur, who had fought for years to secure the release of her brother, said: “It is very unfortunate that Sanaullah has died. I can understand the pain of the family.”
“But I definitely feel that ill-treatment by Pakistan to foreign prisoners has led to all this,” she said.
“Such attacks are very unfortunate and spoil the relations between the two countries. Both the governments need to ensure top security for prisoners.”
Meanwhile, people who came by the Samjhauta Express from Pakistan on Thursday said such incidents might further worsen ties between the two countries.
“I feel there are some forces who do not want good relations between India and Pakistan. This is the reason why such incidents take places.”
Dr. Sunil, who is from Sindh, said, “The deaths of Sanaullah and Sarabjit are very unfortunate. Both the nations must review security in their jails. One more such incident can bring relations to a further low.”
