The issue of ailing Pakistani microbiologist Khaleel Chishty, lodged in Rajasthan jail, figured on Sunday at the luncheon meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari.

Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik, who was seated opposite Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram at the lunch table, is understood to have inquired about Dr. Chishty.

Mr. Chidambaram is understood to have said that the Chishty case was before a court which was yet to take a view on the matter.

Dr. Chishty was handed a life term on January 31, 2011 by a trial court for a murder in Ajmer in 1992.
