Torture on LGH doctors condemned: Expressing deep concern over the violence and torture on doctors in Lahore General Hospital, Principal Post Graduate Medical Institute & Ameer Uddin Medical College Prof Dr Al-freed Zafar has appealed to the higher authorities that such culprits, who committed violence and injured doctors, should be made an example by bringing them to book. He added that justice should be ensured as soon as possible so that in the future no one would have the courage to take the law into his hands.

Talking in the emergency meeting held here on Friday, Prof Al-freed said that doctors always try to save the lives of patients as “messiah” of the community without caring about their own fate so harassment of any employee or doctors of the hospital cannot be tolerated at any cost.

He has demanded the chief minister and IG Punjab that the number of employees in the Police Post of LGH, should be increased immediately so that any untoward incident can be dealt with properly round the clock.
