FS asks India for evacuation of injured Pakistani Sanaullah PDF Print E-mail
ISLAMABAD, May 3 (APP): Foreign Secretary, Jalil Abbas Jilani Friday spoke to his Indian counterpart asking for evacuation of Sanaullah, Pakistani prisoner who was injured in a jail in Occupied Kashmir, to Pakistan for treatment. Foreign Office spokesman Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry in his weekly briefing said, besides direct connection at the level of foreign secretaries of the two countries on this issue, Pakistan’s mission in New Delhi had contacted Indian authorities and seeking details of the attack and consular access.
Indian Deputy High Commissioner was also summoned to Foreign Office today and lodged a protest at the attack on Pakistani prisoner.
Replying to a question whether the attack on Sanaullah was a tit-for-tat for attack on Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, the spokesman said this seems to be a retaliation to Sarabjit Singh incident.
He pointed out that Sarabjit was injured as a result of scuffle but Sanaullah seems to be a victim of direct assault coming in the wake of death of Sarabjit.
The spokesman said Pakistan has expressed its deep concern that Sanaullah, who was serving life imprisonment in a jail in Occupied Kashmir was attacked this morning and as a result received grievous injuries.
He said after getting information, Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi sought immediate consular access to visit Sanaullah, who is presently in hospital in Jammu and in a critical condition.
He said Pakistan has also called upon the Indian government to take all measures to ensure that Sanaullah receives best available medical treatment, investigate the matter thoroughly and punish perpetrators of the atrocity.
He said Pakistan has also reminded Government of India of its responsibility to ensure safety and security of Pakistani prisoners lodged in Indian jails.
The spokesman said there are approximately 700 to 800 Pakistani prisoners in Indian jails.
Replying to a question why India was not forthcoming in granting consular access and other facilitation as Pakistan did in case of Sarabjit Singh, the spokesman said, “Pakistan certainly hopes that India would cooperate as much as Pakistan did.”
He said consular access has been agreed in principle and Pakistan is waiting for India to identify the place where access would be given.
The spokesman said, “We have learnt that the prisoner may be shifted from Jammu to Chandigarh.”
When the spokesman was asked to comment on the reward announced both by Central and State Governments of Indian for the family of Sarabjit Singh, which amounts to treating them heroically, the spokesman said, Sarabjit Singh was a terrorist who took many innocent lives in Pakistan.
He said sarabjit was awarded punishment in accordance with the laws. He said the issue would be taken up with Indian authorities.
Replying to another question, the ways and means how the two countries can avoid such incidents in future and ensure safety of prisoners, the spokesman said there are mechanisms available to them and there is need to strengthen and implement them in letter and spirit.
Answering a question, the spokesman said Pakistan has always raised its voice for political, moral and diplomatic support for Kashmiris.
He said Pakistan has also called for protecting and promoting human rights of Kashmiri people.
“We have stressed the need to stop the high-handedness of security authorities in Occupied Kashmir,” said the spokesman.
He said, “Pakistan believes that their voice for right of self-determination cannot be suppressed through use of force.
Replying to another question, the spokesman said Pakistan has always stressed the need for the two countries to have sustained, uninterruptable and structural dialogue.
The spokesman told a questioner that Pakistan has agreed to accept 355 foreign election observers hailing from 12 countries and three organizations.
