Family of Pakistani prisoner stoned to death in Indian jail seeks justice

SIALKOT: The family of a Pakistani prisoner who was brutally stoned to death in an India jail has sought justice.

The family of the prisoner Shakirullah has urged the government to take up his case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Shakirullah was murdered in Jaipur jail by fellow inmates a few days ago and his body was handed over to Pakistani authorities at Wagah border on Saturday. On Sunday he was laid to rest in his native village Jessarwala-Daska near Sialkot.

Family members of Shakirullah said that Pakistan must expose the “real face” of India. They said that Shakirullah was stoned to death by Hindu extremists in the jail, adding that his protection was a responsibility of the Indian government.

Earlier on Friday, Pakistan left the Narendra Modi administration dazed with the return of Indian Air Force (IAF) Wing Commander Abhinandan, the pilot of a MiG-21 fighter jet shot down in Pakistan’s airspace on Wednesday.
