In a setback to Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh, Pakistan's Interior Ministry has recommended that his capital punishment should not be commuted to life imprisonment contending such an action could "encourage subversive activities".

Sarabjit's case was reviewed on Tuesday at a high-level meeting in the Interior Ministry that was attended by officials of the Foreign Office and the ministries of Law and Human rights, Dawn News channel reported.

Sarabjit is accused of triggering bomb blasts in Lahore in 1990 and has been languishing in Pakistan prisons for nearly two decades.
