Police inspector appointed welfare officer for hospitals


January 14, 2018

Karachi: Sindh police chief IGP AD Khowaja has appointed an inspector from the Karachi police as the focal person / welfare officer to look after the patients from the police department at three of the hospitals in the metropolis with immediate effect, The News has learnt.

Inspector Pir Shabir Hyder has been serving as the Saddar station house officer for the past several years and now enjoys a strong relationship with the management of the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC), the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) and the National Institute of Child Health (NICH).

He is often called in to resolve law and order issues, prevent hooliganism and provide security to senior officials and people visiting these health care facilities.

A large number of police officials and their family members from Karachi and other cities of Sindh daily visit these hospitals, which are tertiary-care facilities for the treatment of general and cardiovascular diseases as well as ailments of children.

Owing to a large number of visitors at these health facilities, however, they face immense hardships in getting proper treatment, claimed a senior police official.

Keeping in view Inspector Hyder’s good ties with the management of the three major hospitals in the city, IGP Khowaja has appointed him the focal person / welfare officer for these facilities.

Police officials and their families could now approach Inspector Hyder in case of any difficulty in getting proper treatment at any of these health care facilities.

The News has learnt that the heads of the JPMC, NICVD and NICH were quite satisfied with the Hyder’s performance, and when senior police officials tried to remove him or transfer him, they used their influence in the provincial government and kept him posted at the Saddar police station.
