New Delhi: After hearing the news of the execution of Mumbai terror attack accused Ajmal Kasab in Pune's Yerwada jail, sources in the Pakistan President’s office on Wednesday said a repercussion could not be ruled out in the case of Sarabjit Singh, a death row prisoner in Pakistan.

“We respect judicial process in India. We hope that everything is done under proper scrutiny. Our understanding says Indian President has jumped the queue in rejecting the mercy petition of Ajmal Kasab and till last minute it was under wrap. We don't deny any repercussion on Sarabjit’s pending mercy petition on this,” he said.

Sarabjit, 49, was convicted and sentenced to death for alleged involvement in a string of bomb attacks that killed 14 people in Punjab in Pakistan in 1990.
