Unidentified guys in Lahore shot and killed Amir Sarfaraz, the killer of Sarabjit Singh

According to sources from India Today TV, Amir Sarfaraz, a notorious underworld figure from Pakistan who was implicated in the killing of Indian national Sarabjit Singh while he was in jail, was reportedly assassinated by unidentified individuals in Lahore on Sunday.

Amir Sarfaraz, also known as Tamba, was a prominent figure in Pakistan's underworld and was targeted by assailants riding motorcycles in the Islampura area of Lahore. Despite being rushed to a hospital in critical condition, he ultimately succumbed to his injuries.

Born in Lahore in 1979, Amir Sarfaraz had close ties to the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Although a case had been filed against Amir Sarfaraz and others for their alleged involvement in the attack on Sarabjit Singh in jail, Sarfaraz was acquitted by a Pakistani court in 2018 due to a purported "lack of evidence."

Sarabjit Singh, hailing from Punjab, was handed a death sentence on charges of espionage and purportedly causing the deaths of at least 14 Pakistani citizens in bomb blasts within Pakistan's Punjab province in 1990. However, these allegations were vehemently denied by his family and Indian authorities, who asserted that Sarabjit Singh had mistakenly crossed the Pakistan border while engaged in farming activities.

After spending more than two decades incarcerated in a Pakistani jail, Sarabjit Singh passed away in May 2013. He had been held at Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore for 23 years before being attacked by fellow inmates, allegedly including Amir Sarfaraz.

This attack occurred shortly after the execution of Afzal Guru, who had been convicted in connection with the 2001 Parliament attack in India.

Following the assault, Sarabjit Singh, aged 49 at the time, was admitted to Lahore's Jinnah Hospital with severe brain injuries resulting from being struck on the head with bricks by fellow prisoners. Despite medical efforts, he succumbed to his injuries, and his body was repatriated to India.

Throughout Sarabjit Singh's lengthy incarceration, his elder sister Dalbir Singh relentlessly advocated for his release.

In 2016, a Hindi feature film titled 'Sarabjit' was released, depicting the struggles faced by Dalbir Kaur as she sought justice and the release of her brother. The film starred actors Randeep Hooda and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and was based on Dalbir Kaur's account of her efforts to secure her brother's freedom.
