Heirs of a man who allegedly died due to alleged negligence of doctors at Mardan Medical Complex (MMC), held protest demonstration here on Sunday.

The protestors told that Sarfraz Khan, hailing from Saeedabad Kaskorona area of Mardan was shifted to MMC on Saturday evening due to high fever.

They alleged that the doctors on duty paid no heed towards treatment of the patient due to which his condition deteriorated further and he breathed his last on early Sunday morning.

The protestors demanded the health minister and other authorities for taking notice of the incident and directing strict action against the responsible.

The motorists had to suffer due to blockage of road caused by demonstration which continued for several hours.
