The condition of Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay, injured in a Jammu jail, today remained serious but stable, Indian officials said here but Pakistan officials maintained that medical prognosis of his recovery or survival was "pessimistic".

Meanwhile, India has also granted consular access on a daily basis to Pakistan officials to visit Sanaullah, who was injured in a scuffle with another inmate in Jammu jail, at PGI in Chandigarh.

A team of Pakistan High Commission officials had already made a visit to Sanaullah at PGI in Chandigarh in the wee hours today.

"We have given Pakistan High Commission officials consular access on daily basis. They can visit Sanaullah once a day. They will also be briefed twice a day on the condition of the prisoner," Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs said here.

He also said there was no change in the condition of Sanaullah. "He remains serious but there is no worsening of his condition", the spokesperson said.

Pakistan High Commission officials had visited the injured prisoner at the hospital at 3:30 AM and had also met the attending doctor.

"The doctors have given a very pessimistic prognosis of Sanaullah's recovery or survival and rule out prospects of his medical evacuation," Pakistan High Commission Press Attache said here.
