: In a bold statement on Wednesday, the wife of Sarabjit Singh said the family did not want him repatriated from if it meant releasing some terrorists in exchange.
"Myself and my daughters would never like Sarabjit freed in exchange for any hardcore Pakistani terrorist lodged in Indian jails," Sarabjit's wife, Sukhpreet Kaur, told PTI.
Ms. Kaur said that for the family, "nothing is above the nation and we can't go against the interests of our motherland."
She said the family was informed by journalists that Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur would be going to and the government had assured her a passport and visa.
"I would urge the government to give me and my daughters travel documents for visiting Sarabjit in the Kot Lakhpat Jail," she added. - PTI
