    New Delhi, (IANS) Two members of the family of Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay, who is in a Chandigarh hospital after being attacked in a Jammu jail, are coming to India Tuesday to meet him, Pakistani officials said here.

    The two family members would arrive in Chandigarh via the Wagah-Attari border, the Pakistan High Commission said in a statement.

    Sanaullah, who was undergoing imprisonment at Jammu’s Kot Bhalwal Jail, was attacked Friday by an Indian prisoner. The Pakistani was flown from Jammu to Chandigarh for treatment.
