Indian spy Surjeet Singh has been released by Pakistan after 30 years.

As soon as Singh landed in India after his release, he confessed that he went to Pakistan for spying.

“I met my children after 30 years in my country. This is happiness,” said Surjeet Singh, 69, who was captured in Pakistan’s eastern border areas in the 1980s and handed a death sentence after being convicted on spying charges.

Pakistani media had originally reported that the person being released was Sarabjit Singh, a high-profile prisoner who has spent two decades on death row in Pakistan after being convicted for his role in a string of bombings.

Sarabjit Singh’s family has campaigned steadily for his release, claiming he is an innocent farmer from Indian Punjab who crossed the border by mistake.
