India calls for Sarabjit's release, upset at Pakistan's U-turn

New Delhi: India Friday said it does not indulge in spying on its neighbours, including Pakistan, and dismissed the claim of Surjeet Singh, the Indian who was imprisoned in Pakistan on charges of spying about three decades ago and freed Thursday.

Union Home Secretary R.K. Singh told a press conference here that the Indian government does not accept that Surjeet Singh was a spy for India inside Pakistan.

"We do not do such spying...We do not accept that he (Surjeet) is a spy," Singh responded to queries on the Indian prisoner's "confession" soon after he crossed into India at Attari-Wagah border checkpost in Punjab Thursday.

"It is completely wrong. We deny it. Neither we do spying, nor we send spies," he said.

"If someone is claiming (to being a spy), he is doing so just to get importance or for some other reasons," Singh added.

The home secretary said he had read reports that Surjeet was mistreated in Pakistan prison.

On being told that Surjeet had claimed the contrary and said that all Indian prisoners in Pakistan were being treated well, Singh said: "One report had said his hands had been cuffed...if anybody says Indian prisoners were treated well in Pakistan, I can fish out statement of others who say otherwise."
