The conditi­on of Sanaullah Ranjay remained extremely critical, as two members of his family — brother-in-law Mohamm­ed Sehzaad and nephew Mohammed Asif — visited him at Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research here on Tuesday.

A detailed medical bulletin released by the hospital said there was fluid accumulation in his lungs and he had developed jaundice — a sign of severe infection. It also gave information on the medication administered.

On a 15-day visa, Sanaullah’s kin was received by officials of the Pakistani High Commission at the Wagah-Attari border earlier in the day and brought from there to Chandigarh by road under police protection.

After meeting Sanaullah, Sehzaad and Asif, who were taken to a hotel in the city, requested the Indian government to release him so they could take him back to Pakistan for treatment.

“We were shocked when we heard, back home, that he had been attacked. The family is praying for his early recovery,” they said.

They condemned a similar attack in Lahore jail on Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, who later died.
