SIALKOT: Sanaullah was buried with state honours in his native Oora village on Thursday night. Apart from officials, thousands of people from Sialkot and nearby areas had gathered in the village.

Gloom enveloped the city after a special plane carrying the body of Sanaullah from Chandigarh landed at the Sialkot airport at 6:45pm. According to DCO Mohammad Shakeel, the body was taken to Government Allama Iqbal Memorial Hospital where a board of senior doctors carried out a post-mortem.

The DCO said some officials of the Pakistani High Commission and two relatives of Sanaullah, who had visited the comatose patient on Wednesday, also travelled to Sialkot from Chandigarh.—Abid Mehdi

Hello My Pakistani Brethren, Aslaamalequam !!!

Here, I am to inform you that we Indians are also in equally grief with the death of Sanaullah as well as Sarabjeet's. We condemn the inhuman attacks upon both Sanaullah and Sarabjeet. Yesterday, on Thursday, a Coffin Box for Sanaullah was provided by Sector 19, Chandigarh's Roman Catholic Church. And your Pakistan's Countrymen are torturing our Christian brethren on your own soil. That is not appropriate. Please wake up today, don't torture them, they are also your own brethren. -- MEHTAB

Very tragic indeed with both helpless prisoners Sarabjit and Sanaullah gone. Hope Pakistan takes this cue and does NOT start round 2!
