ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday dismissed the review petition of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh against his death sentence. Now there is little hope for remission in his sentence as former president Pervez Musharraf had already rejected his appeal for mercy. A three-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Raja Fayyaz Ahmad, comprising Justice Qaim Jan Khan and Justice Syed Zawar Hussain Jafri heard the case. The court dismissed the plea after a brief hearing on ground of non-prosecution, as Singhs counsel did not appear in the case. The case had also been taken up two days ago but his counsel had not appeared before the court even on that day. The court also observed that it had examined the case and found nothing on record that could be made a ground for reviewing the issue. Sarabjit Singh, arrested in 1990 for espionage, had been held responsible for masterminding four bomb blasts, which had killed 14 people in Punjab. A special court had awarded him death sentence in 1991, which was later retained by the High Court in 1993 and Supreme Court in 2005. After rejection of his appeals by the Supreme Court and President of Pakistan, Singh was to be hanged on April 1 last year, but Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had delayed the execution till further orders. Singh is presently imprisoned in Kot Lakhpat Jail, Lahore.
