Sarabjit Singh's family to meet Home Minister on Thursday

New Delhi: The family of Sarabjit Singh, who is lying in coma in a Lahore hospital after an attack in a Pakistan jail, will meet Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde in New Delhi on Thursday to seek his better treatment and bringing him back home. Official sources said Shinde has given time to the family, including Sarbjit's sister Dalbir, to hear their grievances.

The family, which crossed over to India after visiting 49-year-old Sarabjit, said his life can be saved if the Indian government puts pressure on Pakistan to shift him to this country or abroad for better treatment.
