Sledgehammer time.

Kashmir Singh was sentenced to death for spying in 1973 and is set to be reunited with his family.


Mr Singh told Mr Burney that he had a love marriage rather than an arranged marriage.


His wife confirmed this to the minister when he called her.

"Why else would I have waited 35 years for him?" she asked.


Local media reports say that she has been waiting at the border since she first heard news that her husband would be pardoned.


Mr Burney said he will travel to India on Tuesday to see Mr Singh re-unite with his wife as well as their two sons and a daughter.

"My real purpose in going with him to India is that when this pair of swans meet after 35 years, I want to capture it with my own eyes," he said.
