Amir Sarfaraz Tamba, a key suspect in the murder case of Sarabjit Singh and a known associate of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed, was fatally shot by unidentified assailants in a targeted attack in Lahore on Sunday.

Tamba was ambushed by assailants riding a motorcycle near his residence in Lahore. According to reports, he sustained gunshot wounds to the chest and legs during the attack. In December 2018, a Pakistani court acquitted Tamba and another prime suspect, Mudassar, in the Sarabjit Singh murder case, citing insufficient evidence against them.

The Lahore sessions court’s verdict came after all witnesses turned hostile, leading to the acquittal of both suspects due to lack of evidence.In response to Tamba’s death, Swapandeep Kaur, daughter of Sarabjit Singh, alleged Pakistan’s involvement in his assassination. She expressed her belief that the Pakistani government orchestrated Tamba’s killing to conceal secrets he may have possessed. Kaur accused Pakistan of being complicit in her father’s death and claimed that the assassination was part of a cover-up conspiracy.

Kaur emphasized that her family seeks justice and a trial to uncover the motives behind her father’s murder. Reports suggest that Tamba was also associated with terrorist Hafiz Saeed, notorious for his role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Kaur’s reaction suggests a suspicion of a new policy by Pakistan, wherein it eliminates its terrorist proxies, possibly to evade future exposures and to create a narrative that could implicate India in alleged extrajudicial killings in Pakistan. This suspicion aligns with recent propaganda pieces by The Guardian, based on purported statements from ISI sources, aimed at accusing India of orchestrating such killings.
