LAKKI MARWAT: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government held a probe into the charge-sheet issued against the medical superintendent and a doctor in the Government City Hospital Lakki Marwat over an autopsy issue, sources said on Sunday.
The sources said the provincial government constituted a committee comprising provincial Secretary Zakat and Ushr Syed Hidayat Jan and District Health Officer Mardan Dr Habibullah Khattak, who came to Lakki Marwat and probed the incident last week.
The sources said the committee would submit the report to the Health Department.The issue emerged when one Mir Wali, a Class-IV employee at the office of the District Education Officer (male), was shot and injured by armed men on September 19 during the night at 1:05am while offering resistance to a robbery bid in the Graban locality in the limits of Saddar Police Station.
He was rushed to the Government City Hospital in Lakki Marwat where Dr Hanifullah, orthopaedic surgeon, provided first aid and referred him to the District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital in Bannu due to excessive bleeding.
The doctors in the Bannu hospital operated upon him but his bleeding could not be stopped and they referred him to the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar but he died on the way near Badaber.
The relatives of the deceased took his body back to the Government City Hospital for autopsy where Dr Badshah Khan, who was on duty, had gone out to offer Friday prayers.
When Dr Badshah Khan didn’t return after prayers, the deceased’s relatives staged protest by blocking the Lakki-Mianwali road at the Kargil Chowk and placed the body on the road. They chanted slogans against the hospital administration in general and Dr Badshah Khan in particular for not carrying out the autopsy.
Taking serious notice of the incident, the then Deputy Commissioner Lakki Marwat Syed Zafar Ali Shah informed the provincial authorities of the Health Department about the incident.
The health department directed the

deputy commissioner to hold an enquiry against the medical superintendent and Dr Badshah Khan.
The deputy commissioner constituted a two-member committee comprising the then Additional Deputy Commissioner Ihsanullah Khan (who is now the deputy commissioner Lakki Marwat) and Medical Superintendent DHQ Hospital Lakki Marwat, Dr Abdur Rehman.
The findings of the enquiry report were forwarded to the provincial health department.After receiving the report, the provincial authorities issued a charge-sheet against the medical superintendent and Dr Badshah Khan.When contacted, medical superintendent Dr Ghulam Ali said that he was posted as acting medical superintendent on a verbal request by the District Health Officer Dr Nek Nawaz Khan.
