Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah 'extremely critical'

Chandigarh, May 8 : Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay, who is in a hospital here after being attacked in a Jammu jail last week, suffered renal failure Wednesday and doctors said that his condition was "extremely critical".


"The patient has become extremely critical. He has developed renal failure with no urine output since morning. Hence he was put on peritoneal dialysis by Nephrologists. He had developed hypothermia," a medical bulletin issued by the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here said.

"Neurologically he continues to be in deep coma. His overall status is extremely critical, far worse than yesterday (Tuesday) night," S.N. Mathuriya, professor and head, department of neurosurgery, said.

Sanaullah had developed jaundice and other internal infections Tuesday, doctors said.

Two members of Sanaullah's family had arrived here Tuesday from Pakistan.

"I appeal to the Indian government to send him back to Pakistan with us," Mohammad Shahzad, Sanaullah's brother-in-law said.

Sanaullah, who was undergoing life imprisonment at Jammu's Kot Bhalwal Jail, was attacked Friday by an Indian prisoner. The Pakistani was flown from Jammu to Chandigarh for treatment.

The attack 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.
