Sarabjit died of cardiac arrest in a Pakistani hospital in the wee hours today after being comatose for nearly a week following a brutal assault by fellow inmates in a high- security jail.

The Indian prisoner had sustained severe injuries when at least six prisoners attacked him in a barrack at Kot Lakhpat Jail on Friday last.
