Jammu: Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Saturday said, India promptly responded after the attack on a Pakistani prisoner in a Jammu jail, while Pakistan took no action after the attack on Sarabjit Singh.
"It (attack on the Pakistani prisoner by another inmate in Jammu) should be condemned in same way (that of Sarabjit Singh)," Azad told reporters in Gulabgarh area of Kishtwar district during his day-long tour to assess the damage caused by earthquake in the Chenab valley.
"Differences between two countries are such that, here we acted very fast...Took action against those involved (in the attack on the Pakistani prisoner), but Pakistani authorities took no action (in the case of Sarabjit Singh`s killing)," Azad said.
"Government has no role or hand in it (the incident in Jammu jail), those people who are involved will be punished," Azad said adding that the Centre took urgent steps and flew the injured prisoner in an air ambulance to PGI Chandigarh, where he (Sanaullah Ranjay) has been admitted for further treatment.
