Sanaullah Haq is brain dead: Indian doctors

Monday, May 06, 2013 - New delhi—Sanaullah Haq, the Pakistani prisoner who was attacked in an India prison in Jammu last week, is brain dead, doctors of the PGI Chandigarh said on Sunday, a private TV channel said on Sunday.

Doctors at PGI Chandigarh issued the latest report over the condition of Sanaullah Haq according to which the attacked prisoner was in a brain-dead state.

The report was reportedly signed by Dr SN Mathu Raya and other doctors of the team tending to the Pakistani prisoner.

Earlier, a CT scan detected multiple contusions with severe brain edema (brain capillaries damaged due to head injury) caused by severe head injuries.

A team of doctors, including a neurosurgeon, are looking after Haq in the intensive care unit of the hospital.

Representatives of Pakistan High Commission visited the critical prisoner and will get updates regarding his condition from doctors today, the Times of India reported.

Sanaullah Haq, who was convicted of involvement in separatist activities in the disputed area of Kashmir, was attacked in an Indian prison by a court-martialled Indian soldier in retaliation to a similar incident in a Pakistani prison where some prisoners attacked Sarabjit Singh, who was a deathrow prisoner in Pakistan convicted for terrorism charges related to bombing in Faisalabad that had killed 14 people. Sarabjit later died at a hospital in Lahore.—Agencies
