Sarabjit Singh's killer Amir Sarfaraz shot dead

In the Islampura neighborhood of Lahore, Amir Sarfaraz Tamba, a don of the city and a close associate of the mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai terror assault, Hafiz Saeed, was shot and killed by bike-borne attackers. After being taken to a hospital in severe condition, he passed away from his wounds.

In December 2018, a Pakistani court found “lack of evidence” to exonerate two major suspects in the Sarabjit Singh murder case: Amir Sarfraz, also known as Tamba, and Mudassar.
The Lahore Sessions Court rendered its decision when all the witnesses became hostile.
Due to a lack of evidence, a Pakistani court dismissed all charges against Tamba and Mudassar in the case pertaining to Sarabjit's death in 2018.
In 2013, two death row inmates from Pakistan, Amir and Mudassar, attacked and killed 49-year-old Sarbjit Singh in the Kot Lakhpat Prison in Lahore.
Born in Lahore in 1979, Amir Sarfaraz was a close friend of the founder of LeT. His father is Sarfaraz Javed.
Sarabjit Singh was facing the death penalty in 1990 after being charged of participating in multiple explosions in the state of Pakistan.
Sarabjit Singh was born in Bhikhiwind village in Tarn Taran district of Punjab.
Singh, 49, passed away in 2013 at the high-security Kot Lakhpat jail after being in a comatose state for about a week due to a violent attack by other prisoners led by Tamba.
Sarabjit Singh was taken into custody in 1990 when he was drunk and crossed the Indo-Pak border by Pakistani border guards. According to his wife, he left to work in his fields close to the border with Wagah and never came back.
After facing initial charges of entering Pakistan illegally, Sarabjit was then implicated in four explosions in Lahore and Faisalabad that claimed 14 lives.
He was convicted guilty of terrorism in 1991 by a Pakistani court and given the death penalty under Pakistan Army Act. Later, the ruling was upheld by a higher court. His pleas for mercy were later denied by the Supreme Court.
Sarabjit again filed a mercy petition to the President Asaf Ali Zardari in 2012. His death sentence was then commuted to life prisionment.
As part of a prisoner exchange with , Pakistani officials said that Sarabjit would be freed that year. But instead of releasing him, another man was released, which infuriated the Indian authorities.
