Pakistani authorities on Thursday ordered a judicial inquiry into the murder of Indian death row convict Sarabjit Singh. He died after being comatose for nearly a week following an assault by other inmates of Kot Lakhpat Jail.
Najam Sethi, the caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab province, ordered the judicial inquiry. He directed officials to ensure that the probe was completed in 15 days.
“Chief Minister Najam Sethi has directed the Home Department to prepare terms of reference for a judicial inquiry into the murder of Sarabjit Singh. The inquiry would be completed within 15 days,” a Punjab government spokesman said.
The inquiry will be conducted by a High Court judge, state-un Radio Pakistan reported.
Mr Sethi also directed authorities to beef up security for all foreign prisoners in jails across Punjab province, the spokesman said.
The Punjab government has formed an eight-member medical board headed by Umer Farooq Baloch to conduct an autopsy on Sarabjit’s body.
