Body of Shakirullah martyred in India handed over to Pakistan at Wagah Border
LAHORE (92 News) – The body of martyred Shakirullah, who was stoned to death in Jaipur jail, was handed over to Pakistan officials at Wagah Border on Saturdday.
The family members off Shakirullah received the body.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has reiterated its demand from India that the killers of Shakirullah be taken to task.
The Foreign Office spokesperson, in a statement, said findings of the inquiry and postmortem report may be shared urgently and to ensure safety of all Pakistanis, especially Pakistani prisoners in Indian jails, to prevent recurrence of such tragic and reprehensible incidents.
After the killing of Shakirullah by inmates in Jaipur Jail, the Pakistan government had condemned the incident and asked India to immediately provide the details of inquiry of the murder and postmortem report, which have not been provided so far.
On Friday, Pakistan returned the captured pilot Abhinandan safe and sound. On the other hand, it is pity that India is returning the bodies to Pakistan.
A few days back, prisoners in collusion with the jail administration had tortured Shakirullah to death in Jaipur Jail. Shakirullah’s family moved from pillar to post to get back the body.
Sources said that Shakirullah’s body will be handed over to his family at Wagah Border and later he would be buried in Sialkot.
Pakistan has always respected the rights of Indian prisoners. Its glaring example is the return of Indian pilot Abhinandan. India should also respect the rights of Pakistani prisoners keeping in view human values.
