New Delhi, Apr 14 (ANI): Pakistan on Saturday remained non-committal on the issue of release of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, languishing in Pakistan prison for more than two decades.

In an interview to ANI, Pak Commerce Minister Makhdoom Amin Fahim said it was not for him to comment on the issue.

"We have come here to talk trade, other subjects are for different concerned department, I personally see everything from positive frame of mind (release of Sarabjit).

Earlier, Pakistan' human and civil rights activist Ansar Burney, on his arrival to India, informed the mediapersons that he has filed a fresh mercy petition before the President of Pakistan to commute the death sentence of Sarabjit Singh into life imprisonment so that he could safely be repatriated to India to join his family members.

Sarabjit Singh was convicted by Pakistan for his involvement in 1990 serial bomb blasts in Lahore and Multan that killed 14 people. (ANI)
