WAGAH: The Indian officials on Tuesday received Kirpal Singh's body from the Wagah border and took it to the Integrated Check Post (ICP) for documentation and other formalities.
The body of the Indian prisoner, who died under mysterious circumstances in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail, was brought to the Wagah border earlier this afternoon.
Before bringing his body to the Wagah border, the post-mortem was done at the Jinnah hospital in Lahore.
The family members of Kirpal Singh had on Friday met Indian home minister Rajnath Singh to express their concerns over the gruesome treatment meted out to Indians languishing in Pakistani jails.
Kirpal Singh’s family had earlier rejected Pakistan’s claim that he died of a heart attack and demanded a post-mortem to ascertain the true facts behind his sudden death.
Kirpal had allegedly crossed the Attari-Wagah border to enter Pakistan in 1992 and was subsequently sentenced to death in a serial bomb blasts case in Pakistan’s Punjab province.
