LAHORE: Secretary Health Babar Hayat Tarar on Saturday directed Medical Officer Dr Mustafa Raza Kazmi to immediate report to the Health Department, who manhandled Shaikh Zayed Hospital Anatomy Department Head Prof Muhammad Sohail the other day.  Dr Kazmi was serving as an Assistant Professor in Anatomy Department on deputation. On Friday, he misbehaved with Prof Muhammad Sohail at his office, used abusive language and tortured him severely. Prof Sohail sustained injuries on head and left arm.–Staff Reporter  

According to the insiders, senior colleagues of Prof Muhammad Sohail tried to hush up the issue at the initial stage to ‘save the hospital repute’. Prof Sohail, however, did not agree with his colleagues and submitted an application with Muslim Town Police for registration of FIR against Dr Kazmi, a BPS-17 employee of Health Department. The police, however, have not yet registered a case.

Later, Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab Kh Salman Rafiq and Secretary Health Babar Hayat Tarar contacted Prof Muhammad Sohail separately on telephone to express their sympathies with him. They assured Prof Sohail that strict action would be taken against Dr Kazmi.
