Chandigarh, May 6 (IANS) Pakistan High Commissioner Salman Bashir arrived here Monday to visit Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay, who continues to be in a deep coma at the PGIMER hospital here after he was attacked inside Jammu jail.
A medical bulletin from the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research said: “He continues to be critically sick in deep coma almost in the same status as yesterday (Saturday) with no neurological improvement.”
Two officials of the Pakistan High Commission have been camping here since Sunday. They are allowed to see Sanaullah once a day.
Sanaullah, who was undergoing imprisonment at Jammu’s Kot Bhalwal Jail, was attacked Friday by an Indian prisoner, prompting Islamabad to demand his immediate release and repatriation.
The Pakistani was flown from Jammu to Chandigarh for treatment.
The incident took place a day after Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner in Pakistan, succumbed to grievous injuries following a murderous assault in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail.
