Amritsar, Apr 20 (UNI) A sixty-five-year-old Indian pilgrim died due to a heart attack at Gurdwara Dera Sahib in Lahore.

The body of Lakhbir Singh, a resident of Sherpur village in Gurdaspur district, was brought back at the Attari railway station, near here, today by his fellow Sikh pilgrims, who were part of the 3,000 strong 'jatha' of the devotees, who had gone to Pakistan to pay obeisance in the Gurdwaras there on the occasion of Baisakhi last week.

The pilgrim died last night.

In another incident, Pakistani Rangers reportedly rounded up a woman from Jammu and Kashmir near Gurdwara Kartarpur on the banks of Ravi river near the border.

However, the identity of the woman is yet to be declared by the Pakistani authorities, said the pilgrims on their return at the Wagah joint check post.
