NEW DELHI - Surjeet Singh, who was released from Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore after 27 years of his arrest, has said that he will move court to prove that he was spying for the Indian Army.
He is now a free man but upset with the Indian government for disowning him. “No one crosses the border just like that. Someone sends them that’s why they go. I was sent by the Army,” IBN Live said in a report quoting Surjeet.
But, Surjeet is also a man with a mission. Bitter that the Indian government denied he was a spy, Surjeet wants to prove otherwise. The man who was convicted and sentenced to death for spying says he will move court if need be to seek justice and recognition.
Harbans Kaur, his wife who had to struggle to bring up his family, says it’s a chance to cook his favourite dishes. Harbans says he was treated well in jail but freedom is priceless.
