Another spy, same story

Enters Manjit Singh…  

He insists his real name is Sarabjit Singh, and he was caught because the law enforcement had misidentified him for another Manjit Singh, who is said to have been involved in spying and terrorist activities in 1990, which had claimed the lives of 14.   

Sarabjit/Manjit Singh was awarded a death sentence in 1991, but fortunately or unfortunately, he lived on to suffer 18 years of jail. According to a media report, he will be hanged on 1st of April, 2008, or the famously known Fool’s Day. If that happens, Manjit will suffer half of Kashmir Singh’s fate and half Khalid Mehmood’s. 

Whether the specific date has any message for anyone, only the “anyone” can decipher it, but Ansar Burni says he will send a Mercy Plea to the President for his release. I sincerely wish Burni success this time (We’ll pick holes later J), but this one will be really difficult to pull off.

UPDATE I: The execution of Sarabjit Singh has been delayed for one month for reasons best know to the Authorities.

  2. He should be hanged. I know its a cruel thing to say, but the man was involved in terrorism and killed many innocent Pakistanis. There were eyewitnesses who saw him plant the explosives.

  3. Yes lallopallo,
    Those who get hanged die,
    those who see it happen carry the scar.
    and that’s what I guess destiny is,
    his and ours.

  4. Ansar Burni says he has no sympathies for terrorists and he won’t appeal for Sarabjeet. After the Khalid Mehmood incidence he couldn’t take a risk of annoying his people. Lets hope for the best.Let good sense prevail in the people and establishment of both the countries.

  5. well, his office initially, according to BBC Urdu, had claimed that Sarabjit has already spent 18 years in jail and hanging him would mean double punishment. Seems they are now acknowledging the complexity of the situation. Some sort of prisoner exchange can be a way out. May be.
