Plane with Sanaullah's body takes off for Pak
Chandigarh: The special plane with Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah's body took off from the Chandigarh airport for Pakistan on Thursday evening. The Pakistani prisoner's body was handed over to an official of the Pakistan High Commission by the authorities in Chandigarh earlier in the day.
Two Pakistani diplomats and two relatives of Sanaullah were among the persons who had taken the body. Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur earlier today expressed her condolences to the family members of the Pakistan prisoner, and said the Indian Government would provide all assistance to send his body back to Pakistan.
"We have done the best of the treatment for him, but sadly he is no more. We will facilitate and provide assistance to send his body back," she said. Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said that despite the government's best efforts, Sanaullah had succumbed to his injures.
Following a dreadful washout in the four-State Assembly polls, a humbled Congress accepted its defeat and called for a much needed introspection to rethink their strategy ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
