Pakistani officials visit injured prisoner in Chandigarh

New Delhi, May 4 (IANS) Pakistani officials have visited a Chandigarh hospital where a comatose Pakistani prisoner is being treated, said the ministry of external affairs Saturday.

“Pakistani officials had consular access to injured prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay and also met attending Doctor in Chandigarh,” tweeted external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin.

Sanaullah Ranjay, a Pakistani lodged in Jammu’s Kot Bhalwal Jail, was critically injured after being attacked by an Indian prisoner Friday, prompting Islamabad to demand his immediate release and repatriation.

He was attacked in the morning following an altercation. The incident took place a day after Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner in Pakistan, succumbed to grievous injuries sustained in a murderous assault on him in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail.

On Friday, India granted three Pakistani officials consular access to Sanaullah. He was flown to the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh for treatment.
