Just like in the case of Sarabjit Singh, vital organs are missing from Kirpal Singh’s body, another Indian who died in a Pakistani jail.
 
His death last week was also in circumstances that don't quite match with causes of death cited by Pakistan.
 
Kirpal was lodged in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat jail.
 
Body of Kirpal, who died on April 11 at Jinnah Hospital, was brought back to India on Tuesday.
 
Indian doctors in 2013 found that many of Sarabjit's organs were missing.
 
"Some parts, which are vital for conducting autopsy, were missing," a doctor had said after Sarabjit's post-mortem.
 
Pakistani officials have attributed Kirpal's death to a heart attack, but family members allege torture and foul play.
 
Kirpal's family says he was tortured in jail.
