Fighting for the release of her brother Sarabjit Singh, the Indian death-row convict languishing in a Pakistan jail, Dalbir Kaur has now knocked the doors of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi seeking her intervention for his release.


Sarabjit Singh is languishing in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat jail for over 20 years. Kaur met Gandhi at her residence and raised the issue.

Maintaining that she cannot express the pain the family has suffered, Kaur said that Gandhi listened to her patiently and assured all help.

Sarabjit, who is 49-year-old, was convicted and sentenced to death for alleged involvement in a string of bomb attacks that killed 14 people in Punjab in Pakistan in 1990.
