Hooda had also attended the last rites of Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur who died in 2022.

On Sunday, a group of unidentified gunmen shot bullets into Tamba's chest in Sanat Nagar, Lahore. The assailants came on a motorcycle to Tamba's residence and started gunfire.

The Lahore police have registered an FIR against two unidentified assailants on the complaint of Tamba's younger brother Junaid Sarfraz.

In 2013, Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh passed away due to cardiac arrest at Jinnah Hospital Lahore after being comatose for nearly a week following a brutal assault by inmates, including Tamba, inside Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore.

Sarabjit Singh had been allegedly found guilty of taking part in several bombings in Pakistan's Punjab province in 1990 and was given the death penalty. However, Singh's family in India maintained he was a victim of mistaken identity.

His sister Dalbir Kaur had fought a long battle to secure his release from Pakistan but failed.

Kaur is blaming the Pakistan government was behind the murder of Tamba.
