Bhikhiwind: Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, who died in Pakistan on Thursday, after being attacked in a Lahore jail last week, will be cremated with full state honours in village Bhikhiwind on Friday. Grieving his death, his sister Dalbir Kaur called for snapping all ties with Pakistan.

"India must give a suitable response and snap all entertainment, sporting and trade ties. There should be no dialogue with Pakistan," Dalbir Kaur said.

She also said that the Indian government acted too late. "The Indian government acted late. Something should have been done earlier," she said. "I never thought Pakistan would be so brutal. I have no information about the autopsy," she added

She also added that she will continue her fight for other Indians in Pakistani jails. "My fight will continue for all the other Sarabjits who are still languishing in Pakistani jails," Dalbir Kaur said.

Dalbir Kaur had on Thursday appealed to all countrymen to unite and attack Pakistan, where her brother breathed his last in the wee hours of the day after remaining comatose for nearly a week following a brutal assault by his fellow inmates in a high-security Lahore jail.

"Pakistan is a coward. It's time to wage a war against it," said Kaur, while addressing a press conference in New Delhi on Thursday.

Kaur said Pakistan has murdered her brother and alleged that Pakistan human rights activist Ansar Burney had demanded Rs 25 crore to help Sarabjit. "Had I paid Rs 25 crore to Ansar Burney, Sarabjit would have returned to India. I am poor so could not pay him. Burney had told me that at least pay Rs 2 crore to get Sarabjit. He told him that if I will give him the money in the morning, Sarabjit will be released by evening," she alleged.
