ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the litigants of ''PolyClinic Torture Case'' to either strike an out of court compromise or face the course of law. The suggestion was made to both the embattled groups, one comprising doctors of Federal Government Services Hospital (FGSH) and second the family of a senior bureaucrat Tariq Khakwani, by a three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar. The august bench is seized with the matter since November 10 when Chief Justice of Pakistan took suo motu notice of the issue amid hue and cry of the doctors of federal capital that local police was failing to take action against the offenders due to influence of Tariq Khakwani who is presently Deputy Secretary, National Assembly. Men of Khakwani family had allegedly beaten the medical staff including a lady doctor at FGSH on November 1 after the daughter-in-law of Tariq was declined a non-prescribed medicine. During the hearing of the issue before apex court on yesterday, asked both the parties to see whether they could reach an out of court settlement to avoid the process of litigation which is bound to involve ladies from both sides if the law would take its course. "You should reach at some settlement out side the court as it would be good for you instead of dragging females into the court, otherwise the law will take its course", Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar advised both the parties who were present before the court. Both Chief Commissioner and Inspector General Police, Islamabad along with a senior official of Ministry of Health were also present on the occasion to assist the court. Earlier, the bench perused contents of a judicial probe into the shabby incident conducted by District and Sessions Judge, Islamabad on the orders of apex court. Islamabad Police Chief also requested the bench to adjourn the matter for one week for complete police inquiry into the brawl that led to injuring three medical staffers. Replying to a query whether he had made any move to resolve the controversy, Deputy Secretary National Assembly, Tariq Khakwani informed the court his family has sought apology from aggrieved doctors and tried best to enter into a compromise. The aggrieved doctors however grumbled before the bench against the bureaucrat and alleged that Khakwani had been threatening them, of dire consequences for pursuing their grievance instead of any attempt for compromise. Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar also disbelieved Deputy Secretary, observing a small effort was only made at the initial stage but the Khakwani family later paid no heed to resolve the issue. With these remarks, the proceedings were adjourned till December 2. According to FGSH authorities, Gohar Khakwani son of deputy secretary National Assembly, Tariq Khakwani, along with accomplices assaulted lady doctor Riffat Pashsa and doctor Ali Ahmed in the emergency ward of hospital on November 1. The incident had reportedly taken place shortly after the daughter-in-law of Tariq Khakwani, Meeran Sharif came to hospital and demanded an anti-rabies vaccine administered to her minor daughter, which was purchased outside the hospital. Dr Riffat Pasha, who was the in-Charge doctor at that time in the emergency, however declined the medication on the excuse that it was not prescribed by any doctor. The lady doctor was of the view that it would be unsafe to inject a medicine purchased from market and that too without a prescription. The arguments further heated and men from Khakwani family allegedly also came to scene and had have beaten the doctors.
