Pakistan High Commissioner Salman Bashir is likely to visit Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay, who is still critical in the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGMIER) here, on Monday.

In a medical bulletin, the hospital on Sunday stated that the patient’s arterial blood gases are satisfactorily maintained on moderate oxygen flow. He continues to be on a ventilator and his blood pressure continues to be maintained with three inotropic drugs, it said. The bulletin also said that Ranjay continues to be in deep coma and his medical status is the same as  Saturday, with no neurological improvement.

“The Pakistan high commissioner is likely to visit Ranjay tomorrow (Monday) in PGMIER,” said an official. The three member Pakistani diplomat team on Sunday visited the Pakistani prisoner and spoke to the doctors, who are treating him.

Sources said that the condition of Ranjay, who suffered head injuries in a scuffle with another inmate in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kotbawal jail, remained critical. A CT scan showed multiple contusions with severe brain edema. Ranjay was serving life term after being convicted under TADA provisions following his arrest in 1999.
