Making last minute efforts to save Indian who faces execution today: Sushma

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today said government was making last minute efforts to save an Indian man facing execution tomorrow in Indonesia in a drug related case.

Gurdip Singh (48) was found guilty by Indonesian authorities of trying to smuggle drugs into the country.

"Gurdip Singh is facing death sentence in a drug case in Indonesia.

"We are making last minute efforts to save him from execution on July 28," Swaraj said in a series of tweets.

Singh was reportedly given death sentence by a district court in Indonesia's Tanggerang Banten province.

Singh, who hails from Jalandhar in Punjab, is among 14 people who are facing execution after the authorities decided to resume implementing death penalties. The decision was criticised by human rights organisations.
