Man in Pak jail for 36 years to walk free next week: Jaipur MP
A Jaipur resident who is languishing in a Pakistan jail for 36 years is likely to be released next week, according to the local MP here.
Union minister of state for external affairs minister V K Singh told a delegation led by Jaipur MP Ramcharan Bohra in New Delhi today that Gajanand will be set free on the eve of Pakistan’s Independence Day.
He said the man, now 68, was sentenced to two months in prison but languished there because he did not have consular access over the years.
This raised the hopes of Gajanand’s wife Makhni Devi and two sons Rakesh and Mukesh about seeing him again.
