LAHORE: Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) came under the aggression and assault of a lawyers on Wednesday.
The lawyers stormed the emergency ward of Punjab Institute of Cardiology in Lahore which resulted into the halt of emergency operations for many hours leaving the patients in a vulnerable condition.
The lawyers also vandalized the public property, a police vehicle got burnt and Punjab’s provincial minister Fayyaz ul Hasan Chohan was thrashed and beaten by the angry mob.
This violence by a group of lawyers took the lives of atleast 3 patients who were in immediate need of medical facility but all turned a deaf ear to their voice due to the panicky and fearful situation inside PIC.
On the other hand, the doctors also didn’t paid any attention towards the extremely deteriorating condition of the women and proceeded for a strike rather looking after the ailing patient.
After hours of continued violence, the law enforcement agencies came in action and arrested more than a dozen lawyers.
Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar had taken serious notice of the incident in Lahore.
