Trigger warning: Physical violence
A video has gone viral on social media, in which family members of a child who died at the Children’s Hospital in Lahore, can be seen beating up a doctor at the facility.
The Young Doctors organization at the Children’s Hospital immediately ceased all indoor and outdoor medical services in response to the event.
Five suspects have been nominated in the First Information Report (FIR), which states that family members of the deceased child attempted to murder medical professionals.
In addition to physically abusing the physicians, the accused specifically singled out female nurses and doctors and swore at them.
All five suspects were swiftly taken into custody by the police for further investigation and legal proceedings.
Following the incident, the doctors staged a protest at Ferozepur Road.
