He said the body of Singh was handed over to the BSF at the Wagah border where his wife was also present.
Currently, over 2,500 Indian Sikhs are in Pakistan in connection with Guru Nanak Dev‘s birth anniversary festivities.
A few days ago, an Indian Sikh family was looted by ‘robbers dressed in police uniforms’ in Lahore.
According to police, Kanwal Jeet Singh and his family members, who had come here from India to attend Guru Nanak Dev’s birth anniversary festivities, had gone to Liberty Market in the Gulberg area of Lahore for shopping on Wednesday.
When the Sikh family came out of a shop two robbers dressed in police uniforms stopped them and looted cash and jewellery at gunpoint,” a police spokesperson, Ehtasham Haider, told PTI.
Punjab caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi had ordered the Punjab police to arrest the culprits within 48 hours. However, no progress has been made in the case nor has any compensation been given to the victims.
