Burundi student Yannick Nihangaza's family has refused to shift him to Chandigarh's Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) until a team of doctors from their Embassy recommends it.
Yannick's father Nestor Ntibateganya told media in Patiala on Monday at Columbia Asia Hospital that they were "not satisfied" with the authorities dealing with the case.
"We have been pressured by local authorities to shift my son to PGIMER but we have to wait and watch the action of Punjab government regarding the case," he said.
"Moreover, we have been waiting for the medical team of our Embassy to arrive here and examine Yannick," he said.
Nestor demanded "action should also be taken against those who had delayed the probe and harboured the culprits.
"We want action to be taken against those persons who have misled the probe and adopted a lackadaisical attitude in informing high officials about the incident," he added.
23-year-old Yannick, a student of B Sc (computers) in a private university near Jalandhar, was stoned, severely beaten and left on the roadside on April 21 by a gang of youths. Some passers-by later took Yannick to hospital.
