Mirpurkhas - Followers of a Pir created a law and order situation at the Civil Hospital late on Thursday night after doctors declared their spiritual leader dead on arrival at the hospital.

The young followers of the Pir used abusive language against the doctors and other hospital staff and broke doors and furniture of the hospital.

Some policemen on duty at a picket outside the hospital did not intervene. The angry youth also manhandled doctors and other staff and damaged a costly electric shock machine. The deceased was identified as Pir Abdul Sattar, resident of Hameedpura Colony.  Later, police were called in to control the situation. Sources said that civil surgeon Dr Iqbal Bhurgari has written a letter to Mirpurkhas deputy commissioner, SSP and DIG about the incident.
