LARKANA:Doctors, businessmen, senior citizens and medical centre owners held a joint press conference at PMA House here Friday in which they condemned the recent alleged incident of rape of a married woman under anesthesia inside operation theater at a private medical centre and termed it fake and fabricated.
Prof Khursheed Ahmed Abbasi, President Pakistan Medical Association Dr. Ikran Tunio, Muhammad Ali Shaikh President Larkana Chamber of Commerce, Dr Shah Baig Chandio, PPP City president Khair Muhammad Shaikh, Dr Gulzar Tunio, Dr. Zamir Soomro, Nisarullah Shaikh, Dr Diyali Gul, Dr Gul Shaikh and others were present in the media talk.
They said that when operation is conducted either at government hospitals or private medical centres, OT technicians and doctors are always present along with a woman employee in the operation theater (OT) and during that time nobody can do such an ugly thing. They said that her lower body part was under anesthesia because of her leg operation and she was conscious. Nobody complained after her operation but some miscreants and blackmailers joined protest and instigated others. They said police without any cogent reason forcibly entered into the OT and harassed doctors, other employees and lodged a fake case which created hindrances in treatment of other patients.
They said the said operation theater is still closed, adding investigators can take samples and get DNA tests done from any laboratory of any country of the world. They said allegations levelled are concocted, fake, fabricated and only amount to defame doctors’ community. They said they have CCTV footage which have also been handed over to police, in which it is clear that not only one person but the entire required staff is present in the OT. They said a drama was hatched after the woman came out of the OT, purpose of which was to malign the doctors. They demanded a free, fair, transparent and honest probe which will certainly absolve the doctor and other employees of all the charges.
