India has strongly condemned the killing of a minority Sikh youth in Peshawar, Pakistan. India appealed to Pakistan to stop lying and take immediate action to punish the culprits of this heinous act. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said that Pakistan should work to protect the minorities in its country rather than preaching to other countries.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old Sikh youth was killed by unknown persons in Peshawar, Pakistan. The body of the youth has been recovered from the area under the Chamkani station. Peshawar Operation SSP said that the youth had been identified as Ravinder Singh. The SSP said that the police were investigating the incident.
