PM to raise Sarabjeet issue with Musharraf

September 10, 2005 21:35 IST

India on Saturday said the issue of Sarabjit Singh, sentenced to death in Pakistan, is expected to be raised by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with President Pervez Musharraf when they meet in New York on September 14.

"I hope the issue will be discussed when the Prime Minister meets President Musharraf on September 14," External Affairs Minister K Natwar Singh told reporters on the sidelines of a function to release a book on India's partition.

Responding to questions on Musharraf's remarks on Sarabjit that he was involved in terrorist acts, he said "we have told them (Pakistan) that he is an Indian national and sentiments are attached to the issue."

Singh said, "We hope that he will not be hanged."
