Investigation ordered into violence against Civil Hospital staff


KARACHI:Sindh Minister for Information Syed Nasir Hussain Shah has said that Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah while taking notice of the violence against the medical staff of the Civil Hospital ordered an immediate inquiry into the incident.

“Our doctors, nurses and paramedics are risking their lives to save the lives of others. Such violence against them is intolerable,” the provincial information minister said. “If people had a complaint against the medical staff, they should have talked to the administration and not attacked them,” he said.

Shah said that legal action was being taken against all the attackers and cases had been registered against them. The minister said that a detailed report in this regard would be submitted to the Sindh Chief Minister soon. He said that the Chief Minister had expressed his indignation over all those incidents in which the Civil Hospital as well as the Jinnah Hospital were vandalized and rioted.

Addressing the doctors, nurses and paramedical staff of the government hospitals, Shah said that they should not feel alone at all as the government was standing by them.
