Pak panel to decide on sending Sarabjit abroad for treatment

Islamabad: A four-member panel of Pakistani medical experts supervising the treatment of Indian death row convict Sarabjit Singh in a Lahore hospital after a brutal assault, has been asked to decide whether he should be sent abroad for treatment.

The panel headed by Mehmood Shaukat was directed by the government to decide whether Sarabjit should be sent abroad or foreign neurosurgeons should be called to Pakistan to treat him, Geo News channel reported.

The administration of Jinnah Hospital, where Sarabjit has been in an intensive care unit since Friday, has received a formal order from the government in this regard, the report said.

The panel of experts examined Sarabjit again on Monday and studied the results of tests done on him so far, including two CT scans. There was no official word on the development.

Sarabjit sustained several injuries, including a skull fracture, when six prisoners attacked him in Kot Lakhpat Jail on Friday and doctors said his chances of survival are slim.

He was hit on the head with bricks and his neck and torso cut with sharp weapons. He is in a deep coma and doctors said on Sunday that there had been no improvement in his condition.
