Pakistani prisoner still critical

Chandigarh, May 5, 2013, DHNS&AGencies:
Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay is carried on a stretcher to be shifted to another city for treatment, in Jammu, India, Friday, May 3, 20130. The prisoner in Indian-controlled Kashmir was beaten seriously Friday by another inmate, officials said, a day after a convicted Indian spy died after being bludgeoned with a brick by fellow inmates at a Pakistani prison. Ranjay was imprisoned in 1999 and was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 for being a Pakistani militant operating in Indian Kashmir. AP photo

Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah’s metabolic parameters are settling down, while he continues to remain critically sick and in a deep coma, Dr S N Mathuriya, head of the department of neurosurgery at the PGI Hospital here, said on Saturday.

Sanaullah, who was attacked a few days ago in a jail in Jammu, continues to remain almost in the same condition as on Saturday with no neurological improvement, the doctor said.
“The arterial blood gases are satisfactorily maintained on moderate oxygen flow. He continues to be on a ventilator. His blood pressure continues to be maintained with three inotropic drugs,” Dr Mathuriya said.

Any surgical intervention will depend on how the patient responds to treatment being administered to him.

Pakistani officials have already met doctors at the PGI. Specialist doctors are attending to the patient round-the-clock.

Katju’s plea

Meanwhile, agencies reported from New Delhi that Press Council of India chairman Markandeya Katju on Sunday appealed to the Central government to release the injured Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay as a “humanitarian act”. “I appeal to the Indian government to forthwith send back Sanaullah, a Pakistani prisoner who was attacked in a Jammu jail and is said to be in a coma, to Pakistan, as requested by the Pakistan government. This will be a humanitarian act,” Katju said on his blog.
