From page 01 PATIALA: He came to India to become a computer professional, but Burundi national Yannick Nihangaza, who has been in coma for the past two years following a brawl in Jalandhar, was airlifted to his native country on Monday morning.

Dr Parvez Aslam of Saras Rescue Pvt. Ltd. told media persons, “Our team of aero-medically trained professionals follows strict medical transport procedures and protocol, with the patient’s well-being as our primary consideration.” He said the team would brief about the treatment to African doctors.
Yannick has been comatose for two years now, fighting for life at a private hospital here after some youths assaulted him in Jalandhar where he was pursuing his bachelor’s degree in computer science at Lovely Professional University.
His father, who has been in India to take care of Yannick, is in trauma as he has exhausted his resources in shuttling between offices to get help.
Cabinet minister Surjit Rakhra said the gover nment had not only bor ne all medical expenses but also paid the expenses of air-lifting him in a special air ambulance. He said the accused in the case were already behind bars, adding that the gover nment had provided medicines for two months.
Yannick was attacked while he was going for a party on April 22, 2012. Seven of the nine attackers who were students, have already been sentences to 10 years’ jail, while the other two reportedly fled to Australia.
As the case was highlighted by the media and was seen as having racial over tones, the Punjab government promised to airlift Yannick apart from bearing all medical expenses.
“I sent my son to this country to study. He was a harmless, great child and outstanding student, who was constantly busy lear ning the skills needed for his future. He was not out on the street to learn how to kill, steal or do other kind of evil like that done to him by these killers, who are the citizens of your great nation,” Nester had written to chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on June 20, 2012.
