Sanaullah was buried with state honours in his native Oora village on Thursday night. Apart from officials, thousands of people from Sialkot and nearby areas had gathered in the village.

Gloom enveloped the city after a special plane carrying the body of Sanaullah from Chandigarh landed at the Sialkot airport at 6:45pm. According to DCO Mohammad Shakeel, the body was taken to Government Allama Iqbal Memorial Hospital where a board of senior doctors carried out a post-mortem.

The DCO said some officials of the Pakistani High Commission and two relatives of Sanaullah, who had visited the comatose patient on Wednesday, also travelled to Sialkot from Chandigarh.
