LAHORE, June 30: A 22-year-old patient, who became critical during `wrong` medical treatment at a private clinic on Shalimar Link Road, died at Shalimar Hospital on Thursday.
Police took the doctor and his brother into custody and registered a case against them.
Shalimar police investigation showed that Tanveer of Madina Colony suffered from fever and was taken to Hanif Medical Centre in small hours where Dr Iftikhar and his brother, Zulfikar, administered an `expired` injection to him and sent him to home.
Tanveer was again brought to the clinic with deteriorating health and was administered two more injections. The family again took him home.
After his condition did not stabilise and he fell in the washroom after getting unconscious, the family first consulted Dr Iftikhar and then shifted him to Shalimar Hospital where he died after some time.
The family gathered outside the clinic, lodged a protest and demanded action against the responsible doctors.
After being alerted by the hospital management, the police shifted the body to Mayo Hospital for autopsy.
Shalimar SHO Muhammad Younis said the police had detained Dr Iftikhar and Zulfikar, who administered expired injections to Tanveer, and booked them in a case under Section 319 (Punishment for qatl-i-khata) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
