Dear Brother / Sister,
A person whose ablution is broken should give salam and end the prayer. If the ablution of a person is broken during salah (prayer), he should hold his nose (so that people will suppose it is bleeding) and exit. (Ibn Majah)
If he cannot exit, he should sit and wait for the prayer to end. Then, he should perform wudu(ablution) and pray. If he wants to continue performing in order not to draw attention, he should not read anything. He should just perform movements.
