Attari (Punjab), May 7 IANS | 1 year ago

Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay's brother and another relative crossed over into India Tuesday, four days after he was critically injured in an attack by a fellow inmate in Jammu's Kot Bhalwal jail.


Addressing the media, the family said they would request the Indian government to repatriate Sanaullah, who was in a deep coma at PGIMER in Chandigarh.

On Monday, Pakistan High Commissioner Salman Bashir had visited Sanaullah in hospital.
Two officials of the Pakistan high commission have been camping here since Sunday. They are allowed to see the comatose Pakistani national once every day.

Ranjay, lodged in Jammu's Kot Bhalwal Jail, was critically injured after being attacked by an Indian prisoner Friday. He was flown from Jammu to PGIMER for treatment.

The incident took place a day after Sarabjit succumbed to grievous injuries sustained in a murderous assault on him in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat Jail.
