Earlier, Chief Minister’s Advisor Chaudhry Zaman Gujjar went to the Nishtar hospital in Multan and discovered numerous putrid dead bodies lying on the hospital’s roof. He directed the health authorities to take action against the concerned staff and ordered the incineration of the abandoned bodies. The exact count of the rotting bodies is still not confirmed.
Also ordering Specialised Healthcare Secretary Muzamil Bashir to inquire into the matter was Additional Chief Secretary and retired Capt Saqib Zafar. He also assembled a six-person team to look into the situation.
The committee is headed by Mr. Bashir, and its members include Dr. Muhammad Arfan Arshad, senior medical officer at Nishtar Medical University, Dr. Shafiqullah Chaudhry, assistant professor of anatomy, and one member from each of Multan’s deputy commissioner and city police officer. Within three days, the committee will provide its report.
A student at Nishtar Medical University claimed that the students were using dead bodies for medical research. He claimed that the victims had already been put to use in the experiment and had been left on the roof so that bones and heads could be removed for future medical applications.
