New Delhi: The body of Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah Ranjay, who succumbed to injuries at a Chandigarh hospital on Thursday, will be handed over to Pakistan.

"We will hand over the body to Pakistan," Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said.

Shinde said the Ministry of External Affairs is coordinating with the Pakistani authorities to complete the formalities. "Once the formalities are done, we will hand over the body," he said.

Sources said a detailed post-mortem of Sanaullah, 52, would be done in Chandigarh and the travel arrangements would be made as per the request made by Pakistan. "If they arrange a non-military registered plane, the clearance would be prompt,” Shinde added.
