Jalandhar: In a sigh of relief to the family of drug smuggling accused Indian national Gurdip Singh, Indonesia government has spared him from death penalty, at least for now.

Gurdip was in line of facing firing squad but the efforts by the Indian government could save him from the death penalty.

In a telephonic conversation, Gurdip informed his family on Friday morning about this. He also thanked the Indian government for the support to save him while saying “it is a last minute miracle.”

Gurdip’s wife Kulwinder Kaur expressed her gratitude in a message to Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and desired to meet her.

  • We want to meet her to thank her personally and to plead for my husband’s life who is a victim of the circumstances.
