National Chair, Rotary's Polio Plus Committee and a former District Governor said that Sufiyan, a nine-year-old boy, left for Bangalore with his parents on September 23. He was to be operated upon 10 or 12 days later in Bangalore.
"Sufiyan was under the treatment of Dr Nawaz Lashari at Karachi's National Medical Centre for the past four months but the stage had come when he needed to undergo surgery.
"We got in touch with the Manipal Hospital in Bangalore for further advice where the ailing boy will be taken now," Aziz Memon said.
While seeing off master Sufiyan and his parents, District Governor Shahab Balkhi said, "We will pray for the surgery to be a success, and look forward to a speedy recovery. Our prayers and good wishes are with the little boy."
Bangalore happens to be the home town of Rohan Bopanna, Aisam-ul-Haq's doubles' partner. A nice coincidence.

The News on Sunday Special Report: India Pakistan prisoners more editions
We probably didn't need to do this Special Report. Newspaper stories don't matter when it comes to Indians in Pakistani jails and vice versa. In fact, 'vice versa' sums it up. We do to them what they do to us.
Except when the two countries decide to begin talking, yet again! This time a little before the foreign secretary level talks, some Pakistani prisoners were released by India (and vice versa must have happened) and some more were release....read more
