Rajkot, Mar 12 (UNI) Human rights activist and High Court advocate M K Paul has urged the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to prevail upon the Central Government to disburse suitable compensation to Kashmir Singh who returned after spending 35 years in Pakistani jails.

In a letter to the NHRC, Mr Paul said it is shameful that Indians, including spies, are languishing in Pakistan Jails since a long time but their dependents have not been paid their legal dues.

Mr Paul alleged that dozens of spies, those who have already returned to India after undergoing long painful sentences in Pakistan jails, have also not been paid their monetary dues.

Mr Paul has cited the examples of Rooplal Saharia who had spent 26 years in Pakistani jails and Balwan Singh who had spent nine years in Pakistan jails. Both of them had filed petitions in Delhi High Court against the Government and it is only after that their dues were paid, Mr Paul has said.
