The PGIMER was converted into a virtual fortress soon after Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah, who was injured in an attack by a fellow prisoner in a Jammu jail, reached the institute on Friday evening.
Sanaullah was flown to Chandigarh, from where he was rushed to PGIMER in an ambulance. Soon, a heavy police force was deployed on the hospital campus. At least ten police vehicles were parked near the Nehru Hospital and New OPD block.
The UT SSP, Naunihal Singh, himself monitored the security arrangements.
The police also rounded up some slogan-shouting activists of Shiv Sena outside the hospital.
