The bodies of two Pakistani nationals, including that of a heart patient who died recently, were on Thursday handed over in Attari by the BSF to Pakistani Rangers.
Sabir Ahmed (28), a resident of Lahore, had arrived India by the Lahore-Delhi Friendship Bus on October 23 on a 45 day-visa for undergoing a heart bypass surgery but died at the Escort Hospital in Delhi yesterday.
The other one was that of 30-year-old Shehbaj Azam Khan, who had been lodged in prison after Rajasthan police arrested him on charges of illegally entering the country in May, 2007.
Khan, a resident of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK), became critically ill last month and died at Bikaner jail on October 10.
According to a senior officer, the bodies were handed over by BSF (Border Security Force) Inspector Arun Sharma to Pakistani Rangers' incharge Khadim Hussain at the Joint Check Post in Attari Border.
