Lahore, March 2 (PTI): The lawyer of Sarabjit Singh, who is on death row in a Pakistani prison, today said he had received a death threat from the Taliban for pursuing the case of the Indian prisoner.
Lawyer Awais Shiekh said a letter written by an anonymous activist of the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan had warned his wife to stop him from pursuing Sarabjit’s case.
He said the letter reads: “...Your husband is addressing a press conference about Sarabjit Singh. If this is held, it would be the last day of your husband and every single member of your family will be killed. You will find dead bodies of your children by tomorrow morning.... ”
Shiekh claimed he was barred from holding a news conference at Lahore Press Club to launch his book on Sarabjit.
