Islamabad : Two mercy petitions were filed for Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner on death row in a Pakistan jail, including one by his sister Dalbir Kaur, a senior government official said Monday.
The petitions filed with President Pervez Musharraf were by Dalbir and Pakistani human rights activist Ansar Burney, the interior ministry official said. Both petitions have been received by the presidency.
The official said this was at least the third letter by his sister to the president, while Burney has also sent his appeal to the president Monday.
