Pakistani officials today dismissed a report that a medical board was considering a proposal to send abroad Indian death row convict Sarabjit Singh – comatose in a Lahore hospital after a brutal assault – for treatment.
The four-member medical board headed by Jinnah Hospital chief executive Mahmood Shaukat conducted a routine examination of Sarabjit this morning, officials said.
They rejected a media report that the board was mulling a proposal to send Sarabjit abroad for treatment.
“No such proposal has been under consideration,” an official of the health department of Punjab province said.
“In fact, the medical board has no mandate (to decide about sending Sarabjit abroad),” said the official, who did not want to be named as he was not authorised to speak to the media.
The medical board is “minutely monitoring the patient” and Sarabjit is being given the “best treatment” at Jinnah Hospital, the official said.
Sources in the hospital said that there had been “no improvement whatsoever” in Sarabjit’s condition.
