The opposition BJP on Friday said it would raise in Parliament on Saturday the issue of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh.
At the same time, BJP asked the government to discuss it with Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and secure his release immediately.
Expressing concern over the Pakistan Supreme Court rejecting the review petition of Singh, BJP parliamentary party spokesman VK Malhotra told reporters that the party would raise the matter during Zero Hour.
"We have already given a notice to the Speaker in this regard. We want the government to raise the issue with General Musharraf and secure his release immediately," he said.
Sarbajit's sister Dalbir Kaur is a member of BJP.
