Patients facing problems due to load shedding in DHQ hospital.

Byline: Hafiz Muhammad Aziz-ur-Rehman

HAFIZABAD -- Due to disconnection of electricity supply in the DHQ Hospital the patients were facing a great ordeal and inconvenience for the past some hours.

According to official source, the DHQ administration had failed to deposit the electricity consumption bills worth Rs. 13 lakh for the past three months. The GEPCO authorities today disconnected the supply as a result of which the condition of the patients in the hospital has been rendered miserable. The patients said that due to inaptness and irresponsible attitude of the hospital administration they failed to deposit the outstanding bills causing a lot of hardship to them.

According to Medical Superintendent Dr. Hamed Rafique, the bills could not be paid due to, what he alleged, technical compulsions. He said that as soon as new cheque book is issued the outstanding bills would be paid promptly. Meanwhile, local citizens have called upon GEPCO authorities to take pity on the patients and restore the power supply on humanitarian ground to mitigate the sufferings of the patients.

Meanwhile, a young electrician in Kot Panah village received serious electric shocks and died before any medical aid could be made available to him.

The deceased Mistri Kala was busy in his electric shop for repairing some electrical appliance when he received serious shocks and was electrocuted.

Similarly, two stone-hearted young men and their two companions in Mohallah Muhammadpura Hafizabad severely thrashed their real mother and two sisters today. The police have registered a case against Zubair, Tahir and their three accomplices but failed to arrest any of them. The injured were shifted to DHQ Hospital with critical injuries.

According to Fatima Bibi mother of the accused, her sons wanted to sell the house and on her refusal they pounced upon them with batons, clubs and hatchets and seriously injured her and her two young daughters Fiza and Raqayya.

The injured said that the accused wanted to kill them to usurp the ancestral house. They demanded protection from the DPO and Chief Minister of the Punjab.
