Lahore: Murder cases sought against YDA officials
LAHORE, April 2: An additional district and sessions judge on Saturday summoned the Naseerabad station house officer on April 9 on a petition seeking registration of murder cases against office-bearers of the Young Doctors Association (YDA).
Advocate Ishtiaq Ahmad Chaudhry filed the petition submitting that dozens of patients, including children, had lost their lives due to doctors’ strike.
He said the doctors on the call of YDA had been observing a baseless strike in violation of constitution.
He pleaded since the illegal strike of the doctors had caused deaths of innocent people, they were liable to be booked under murder charges.
He said an application for registration of murder cases against the doctors was filed with the Naseerabad police station but the SHO did not entertain them.
AD&SJ Ameer Muhammad Khan issued notice to the Naseerabad SHO.
