Pakistani fisherman killed in Indian jail laid to rest

A Pakistani fisherman, identified as fisherman Noorul Amin, was killed on March 29 by Indian jail staff, according to media reports.

His funeral prayers were offered on Friday in the Korangi area of Ibrahim Hyderi after his body was shifted to Pakistan Thursday night.

People attended Amin’s last rites in large numbers. He was laid to rest in a local graveyard.

Earlier, when his body was transported to his native area, people, including his relatives and neighbours, raised anti-India slogans and expressed their outrage.

Noor was incarcerated at a jail in India’s Gujarat. He was reportedly tortured to death at the jail.

He was captured along with other fishermen by the Indian coast guards in 2017 when the fisherman’s barge entered India’s marine limit by mistake. He was killed days before his release.

In February, Shakirullah Ilyas, another Pakistani national was stoned to death at India’s Jaipur Central Jail in Rajasthan by three fellow inmates, police said. The brutal stoning occurred in the backdrop of India-Pakistan escalation at the Line of Control in February.

Mentally challenged Shakirullah was arrested on charges of espionage after he mistakenly crossed into Indian territory.
