Who is Sarabjit Singh?

Sarabjit Singh Attwal alleged to be Manjit Singh Rattu by Pakistan was an Indian national convicted of terrorism and spying by a Pakistani court. The Pakistani Supreme Court tried and found him guilty of a string of bombings in 1990 that killed 14 bystanders in Lahore and Faisalabad. But three months after the attacks, Sarabjit, an Indian farmer, reportedly wandered into Pakistan from his border village. He was found guilty and given the death penalty in 1991 following a quick trial in the Lahore High Court (which was later appealed to the Supreme Court). However, the Pakistani government kept delaying the execution of the punishment. In April 2013, he was a prisoner in Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore when he was attacked by other prisoners. He passed away at Jinnah Hospital in Lahore six days later. Amir Sarfaraz Tamba, the man suspected of killing Singh, was attacked and hurt in Lahore on April 14, 2024, by unidentified masked gunmen riding bicycles. He was 49 at the time of his  death. A Bollywood movie was also made on the life of Sarabjit Singh named Sarabjit which was directed by Omung Kumar and produced, among others, by Vashu Bhagnani. Sarabjit Singh and his wife Sukhpreet were portrayed by actors Randeep Hooda and Richa Chada, respectively, while actress Aishwarya Rai portrayed Singh’s sister Dalbir Kaur. The film, which told the story from the viewpoint of Sarabjit Singh’s sister Dalbir Kaur, was banned by the Pakistani Censor Board for being “anti-Pakistani” after it was released in India on May 20, 2016.

Early life

Singh was born in Bhikhiwind, which is in Punjab, India’s Tarn Taran region, close to the Pakistani border. He was fond of wrestling and taking care of rare pigeons. He farmed in other people’s fields.


Sarabjit Singh was arrested by Pakistan Rangers near Kasur on the Indo-Pakistani border. He claimed the arrest was a mistaken identity and was a poor farmer who had strayed over the border. After nine months, Singh was arrested as Ranjit Singh, who had no identification papers and was charged by the Lahore police in the 1990 bombings. He was convicted of spying and carrying out the bombings and given the death penalty. Singh was initially arrested on charges of illegally crossing the India-Pakistan border but was later charged with involvement in the 1990 terror blasts at Faisalabad and Lahore. He confessed on camera to the bombings. Singh was later apprehended in Canada and Chandigarh, India. In 1991, he was given the death sentence under Pakistan’s Army Act. His sister fought well for his release but she failed to get him back. They fought the battle very hard in the court. Sarabjit Singh was attacked in Central Jail Lahore on 26 April 2013 by other prisoners. He was admitted to Jinnah Hospital in critical condition with severe head injuries and a broken backbone. The attack was pre-planned and involved jail authorities. Singh had been threatened after Afzal Guru’s execution in India in February 2013. India appealed to Pakistan to release him on humanitarian grounds or allow him to receive medical treatment in India, but these were repeatedly rejected. Appeals by lawyers were also filed with the Supreme Court of Pakistan to send Singh for medical treatment to the UK or outside Pakistan to save his life. On 1 May 2013, Singh was declared brain dead by doctors at Jinnah Hospital, but Pakistani authorities refused to give a statement. His sister and family returned to India, accusing doctors of being untruthful and evading questions. Singh died on 2 May 2013 in Lahore, and his body was brought to India by a special aircraft the same evening. Indian doctors claim that vital organs were missing from his body and his skull was broken into two pieces.
