Sanaullah Haq, the Pakistani prisoner who was attacked in an India prison in Jammu last week, is brain dead doctors of the PGI Chandigarh said on Sunday, May 5, DawnNews reported. Haq, who was convicted of involvement in separatist activities in the disputed area of Kashmir, was attacked in an Indian prison by a court-martialled Indian soldier in retaliation to a similar incident in a Pakistani prison where some prisoners attacked Sarabjit Singh, who was a deathrow prisoner in Pakistan convicted for terrorism charges related to bombing in Faisalabad that had killed 14 people. Sarabjit later died at a hospital in Lahore. - Text by Dawn.com, photos/captions by Agencies
