Ranjay, whose condition was critical for the last few days and had suffered renal failure on Wednesday, died at 5:30 am at the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh.

“The patient was brought in a brain dead condition and died this morning due to multiple organ failure," a PGIMER spokesman said. The body has been shifted to the mortuary of the institute from the ICU.

"The post mortem will be conducted by the Medical Board in the presence of a Magistrate and videography will be done," he said.

In its Wednesday’s bulletin, the institute had said, "Patient has become extremely critical. He has developed renal failure with no urine output since morning. Hence he has been put on peritoneal dialysis by Nephrologists."

The Pakistani prisoner was serving life imprisonment at Jammu's Kot Bhalwal Jail. He was attacked on last Friday by an Indian prisoner and then he was flown from Jammu to Chandigarh for treatment. The incident took place a day after Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner in Pakistan, succumbed to grievous injuries sustained in a murderous assault on him in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat Jail.
