A team of Pakistani High Commission officials today visited Sanaullah Ranjay, who was injured in a scuffle with another inmate in Jammu jail, at PGI Chandigarh after India granted consular access to them last night.

"Pakistan High Commission officials visited the injured prisoner Sanaullah in Chandigarh hospital at 03:30 hours in the morning. They also met the attending doctor," a spokesperson in the ministry of External Affairs said.

India had granted the consular access to Pakistani High Commission officials last night. They had also given travel permission to three officials and a driver.

Ranjay was injured during a scuffle with another inmate in Jammu jail where he was serving life term after being convicted under TADA provisions. He was arrested in 1999.

A resident of Sialkot in Pakistan, Ranjay was immediately shifted from high-security Kot Balwal jail to Government Medical College Hospital and later rushed to PGIMR in Chandigarh in an air ambulance after doctors said his condition was critical.

The incident involving Sanaullah comes a day after the death of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, who was brutally attacked on Friday last by six fellow inmates in a Lahore prison.
