After learning about the late Sarabjit Singh’s killer being gunned down in Pakistan, actor Randeep Hooda, who played the titular role in the 2016 biographical drama Sarbjit said karma does catch up even if through unknown men. In what's being considered an incident of targeted killing, unidentified gunmen on Sunday killed Amir Tanba, a key figure behind the killing of Sarabjit Singh in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat Jail in 2013.

Amir Tanba was outside his residence at Islampura in Lahore when two unidentified motorcycle-borne gunmen opened fire, injuring him critically. The killing of Amir Tanba is seen as a "revenge killing" done by hired killers. Talking to IANS, an emotional Randeep said it’s all about Karma.

“While doing the Sarabjit biopic it was always a very tragic feeling that when things were on the verge of working out to extradite him to India and get him back home to his family he was murdered in the jail,” said the actor.


Randeep had also attended the last rites of Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur, who passed away in 2022.


“Hearing about his attacker being killed, I wonder what Dalbir ji would have felt. I’m sure it would have been a feeling of some justice served after she fought to get him for years on end,” the actor said.


He said that they would soon call Sarabjit’s daughters and have a chat with them. “Karma does catch up even if through unknown men,” said the actor.
