Pakistan has formed a panel of experts to decide whether Sarabjit Singh should be sent abroad for treatment, according to reports in Pakistani TV channels.
Pakistani doctors treating a comatose Sarabjit Singh on Sunday had said there was no improvement in his condition and chances of survival were “slim” even as his distraught family visited him and demanded that he be sent to India for better treatment.
Sarabjit was admitted to Jinnah Hospital on Friday night with a severe head injury. The 49-year-old Indian prisoner sustained injuries over a widespread area of his head that led to unconsciousness.
Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur, wife Sukhpreet Kaur and daughters Swapandeep and Poonam, visited him at the hospital after arriving in Lahore on Sunday from India.
Sarabjit’s sister, wife and two daughters were allowed to see him through a window from outside the intensive care unit as it was “not good for the patient as well as attendants to get close to each other”.
“Sarabjit Singh’s face is swollen, he was beaten with iron rods… He is unconscious, in a very critical condition…” his sister Dalbir Kaur said.
Sarabjit’s wife Sukhpreet has appealed to Pakistani authorities to send her husband back to India for better treatment.
Indian High Commission officials visited Sarabjit for the second time in as many days after permission was granted by Pakistani authorities following an initial denial.
“The officials visited Singh in the Lahore hospital. His condition remains unchanged,” a spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs said.
