Moreover the Pakistani High Commissioner was allowed to visit the Haq in Chandigarh, according to Indian media channels.

Doctors at PGI Chandigarh issued the latest report over the condition of Sanaullah Haq according to which the attacked prisoner was in a brain-dead state.

The report was reportedly signed by DR SN Mathu Raya and other doctors of the team tending to the Pakistani prisoner.

Sanaullah 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.
