Sarabjit's death a conspiracy: Dhumal

Shimla, May 2 : Former Himachal Pradesh chief minister and BJP leader Prem Kumar Dhumal Thursday attributed the death of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh in Pakistan to "a planned conspiracy hatched in the jail".

"Sarabjit became the victim of a planned conspiracy with inhuman treatment," Dhumal said in a statement here.

He accused the Pakistan government for Sarabjit Singh's death, saying it was clearly involved in this conspiracy.

Dhumal said there was an atmosphere of fear and desperation in the country as people had lost faith in the central government.

Student activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) burnt Pakistan's flag on the Himachal Pradesh University campus here in protest over Sarabjit Singh's death.

Sarabjit Singh died Thursday in a Lahore hospital after being brutally beaten up by fellow inmates in jail April 26.
