Residents belonging to the Sikh community have set fire to an effigy belonging to the Pakistan country in Karimnagar town on Thursday in protest against the death of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh due to negligence of Pakistan nation.

The local Sikhs led by Sohan Singh and others have assembled at Telangana Chowk by carrying Indian national flag and set fire to the effigy belonging to the Pakistan and condemned the brutal attack on Sarabjit Singh in the jail. Raising slogans against the Pakistan, the Sikh youth have flayed the Pakistan for killing a prisoner purposefully by denying medicare.

Appealing the Union government to expose the true colours of Pakistan at international level, they said that the Pakistan had earlier also killed Indian soldiers brutally by smashing and removing the head of a soldier. Terming the Sarabjit Singh as martyr, they warned the Pakistan to mend its ways and maintain cordial diplomatic relations with the country or else it would face serious consequences.
