Jailed in India,for over 40 years !

The ongoing fight of an Indian Advocate to seek justice for foreigners held in Indian jails.

Advocate Bhim Singh who has been fighting for repatriation of Foreigners serving in Indian jails since 1966 is also chief of Jammu And Kashmir Panthers Party, brought this matter as a Petitioner and told the bench that many Pakistani nationals were held without trial in many jails of the country. It is shocking that though most of them have served their sentences, they continue to be in our country’s jails.

Resulting, the Supreme Court asked  the Union Government to give comprehensive list of Pakistani prisoners in India within two weeks to understand the status of the cases pending against them and help activate the bureaucratic machinery in speeding up the repatriation process.

Advocate Singh is the first and foremost human rights activist and lawyer in the Supreme Court of  India and has made continuous efforts helping many Pakistani and other foreign nationals get back home after serving their terms in Indian jails and he is the ray of hope for prisoners serving over their sentenced tenure and for their relatives, back home.

Hopefully , there are Advocates like  Bhim Singh who strongly believe in right to life of every human,  across the borders of our country, who can send back Indian prisoners who are over-serving their term in Pakistani jails.
