The medical condition of the injured Pakistani prisoner in India Sanaullah Haq was described as “extremely critical” on Wednesday after he suffered kidney failure, according to a medical bulletin issued by the hospital.
“His overall status is extremely critical, far worse than yesterday night,” the medical bulletin issued by the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) said.
Sanaullah, who was serving a life term in a Jammu jail, was flown in to PGIMER in Chandigarh on Friday after he had been brutally attacked by another inmate. The attack appears to have been motivated by a similar incident involving Sarabjit Singh who had been imprisoned in Pakistan.
The bulletin issued by the Head of Neurosurgery, Prof SN Mathuriya and anesthesiologist Prof YK Batra stated, “Neurologically, he continues to be in deep coma.”
Sanaullah went into renal failure and was placed on peritoneal dialysis.
The inmate’s relatives, brother-in-law Mohammed Shehzad and nephew Mohammed Asif, who arrived in Chandigarh on Tuesday, visited him on Wednesday in the Advanced Trauma Centre of PGIMER.
Stringent security surrounds trauma centre where Sanaullah is being treated.
