Medical superintendent’s arrest sparks protest


Umerkot June (TNS): Doctors and the paramedical staff in the Civil Hospital Umerkot staged a vociferous protest on Saturday morning against the arrest of Medical Superintendent Dr Jaam Kunbhar after a sewer cleaner, identified as, Irfan Masih, died in the hospital.

The sanitary worker had died after a doctor, who said he was fasting, refused to treat him calling him “disgustingly dirty”

The protesting doctors and the paramedics boycotted the outpatient departments (OPDs) and stopped visiting the admitted patients, leaving them in the lurch.

On a complaint of the father of the victim, the Umerkot police have registered cases against six persons including Dr Yousuf and Dr Allah Dad Rathore.

Pervaiz, the brother of the deceased, said that Irfan died on Thursday after Dr Yousuf refused to treat him insisting that his mud-covered body should be washed first. As Irfan could not get the timely medical cure, he died while the family was preparing to get his dress changed and he was struggling for oxygen.
