New Delhi has written to Islamabad that Sarabjit's belongings -- clothes and other items -- which he kept with him during his stay in Kot Lakhpat Jail should be returned.

India has also asked Pakistan to hand over the money Sarabjit had earned through prison work.

The move came after Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur requested Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde last month to bring back his belongings from the Kot Lakhpat jail.

Kaur had said a memorial would be constructed in Sarabjit's village in Punjab and all his belongings and the money he had earned will be kept there as memorabilia.
