CHINIOT - Protest erupted as quacks’ wrong injection claimed a youth’s life here.

The relatives of the deceased held protest and blocked the road for several hours.

Tariq Mehmood, a resident of Channi Qureshian village, suffered pain in his abdomen and was brought to Intezar and Sarfraz clinic at Mandi Sheikhan, Sargodha Road.

These quacks after examining the patients administered a allegedly wrong injection to him causing the patient’s death.

The protesters took the dead body at the road and protested for several hours.  Traffic from both the sides remained jam and miles of long queues of vehicles were seen on the highway.

Finally, the police reached the spot, lodged an FIR against the quacks and shifted the body to mortuary. 

It was recalled that a number of cases have already been registered against these quacks but they were still working. 

The relatives also alleged that quackery was on the rise in Chiniot and they have submitted applications against these quacks to the district health authorities but to no avail.
