Owis Sheikh, the new lawyer, will file a fresh petition in court on behalf of the Indian national, he has also blamed Rana Abdul Hamid for Sarabjit's review petition being dismissed and said he would file a fresh petition in the court.

"I'm filing a review petition, his restoration application before the Supreme Court. This is one remedy available. If this is rejected, then the only remedy available is to file a mercy petition before the President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari," said Owis Sheikh.

Earlier, Pakistan's Supreme Court in Islamabad had dismissed Sarbjit Singh's appeal.

Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Singh had said on Saturday that she no longer had faith in Rana Abdul Hamid, who was representing Sarabjit till now.
