FEROZWALA- An elderly patient was denied access to the hospital, in Ferozwala Tehsil, due to security blockades erected by the police.

The 60 year old man, whose identity could not be ascertained, suffered a cardiac arrest in Ferozwala, an administrative subdivision of Sheikhupura.

According to our sources, he was being taken to the hospital in an ambulance via G.T. Road, today. The police stopped the ambulance and denied passage, citing security measures. Persuasion by the patient’s family members proved futile. They tried to reach the hospital through different alleys, but were repeatedly blocked by the police. Resultantly, the patient died in the way. The ambulance was stuck near Imamia Colony.
