Pakistan pledges Sri Lanka that justice will be served in Sialkot Tragedy

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has told Sri Lankan President Gotabhaya Raja Pakse that the horrific Sialkot lynching incident will be resolved.

Sri Lankan citizen Diawadange Dan Nandsari Priyantha, who was working as a manager in a private firm in Sialkot, was beaten to death by a mob on Friday for allegedly “blasphemy” and his body was set on fire.

In a tweet on Saturday, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe expressed the nation’s grief and embarrassment over Priyantha’s death.

“I told him that more than 100 people had been detained and promised that they would be punished according to the law,” he said.
According to Sri Lankan news site Newswire, Priyantha’s widow has appealed to both Pakistani and Sri Lankan politicians for justice for her dead husband.

“I found out about the horrific murder of my husband through the news. Later, I came across the internet. He told BBC Sinhala reporters,” He was really an innocent man.

“I urge the governments of Sri Lanka and Pakistan to bring the perpetrators to justice for my husband and two children,” she said.

According to the deceased’s brother, Priyantha had been working in Sialkot since 2012.
