I understand you want to know whether the intervening days to be considered as leave/absence in case prefix or suffix day has not been attended?
There is no provision of any law/act. Company may have such kind of policy for earned leave , your case of PH hence normally no such rule/policy applies. Absence will be considered only for the working day when the employee did not reported for the work.
