ISLAMABAD: Senior Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik said that Surjeet Singh has completed his sentence. He reiterated that Surjeet and Sarabjeet were two different Indian prisoners, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to the media representatives, Malik said that Indian fishermen were released on the principle of reconciliation.

Summary pertaining to the case of Sarabjeet Singh has not been sent to President Zardari yet, the PM's adviser added.

He said that release of Surjeet Singh will take place within 48 hours.

"Baseless allegations dent the bilateral ties of the two countries," Malik said.

He said that three Indian citizens were involved in the Mumbai attacks. India’s information related to Sayed Zabiuddin was incomplete, he added.

The adviser to the PM said “India’s speculative allegations against Pakistan have been proven incorrect on several occasions.”

Moreover he added “most of the time India puts blame on the Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) without even investigating into the matter.”

Rehman's Remarks came after India's home minister said that  a key suspect in the 2008 Mumbai attacks had provided information confirming Pakistani “state support” for the deadly assault.
