On July 30, 2012, Rohullah, who allegedly murdered Sardar Khan, a retired judge of Peshawar High Court and former Attorney General, had fled from the male ward of DHQ throwing mud into the eyes of three cops of Islamabad Police, who were tasked to guard the high profile accused.
After surfacing some rumors that doctors could be involved in escape of the murderer, RMC Principal and AHs Chief Dr Musaddiq constituted a three-member committee to probe into the matter. The committee comprised Dr Shoaib Shafi, Dr Bashir Malik, AMS Benazir Bhutto Hospital (BBH) and Dr Robina Dhodhi.
The committee, after initiating a thorough inquiry into the matter, finally submitted its report to the RMC Principal claiming that no doctor was found guilty in the escape of Rohullah, rather it had happened due to the feeble security arrangements made by the Islamabad Police.
A committee member, on request of anonymity, told TheNation that the whole matter was seen in depth, recording the statements of the doctors and other paramedics on the duty on the day of incident but nothing was found against any doctor.
He added that the committee, however, strictly recommended the construction of a new ward in the hospital to cure and admit the prisoners in case of any decease.
The ward should be heavily guarded to avoid happening of such incident in future and minimize the chances of fleeing of any prisoner, the committee report suggested.
The committee in its report also urged the Punjab government and jail high-ups to improve the jail hospital with providing all facilities so that prisoners should be treated within the jail premises, he said.
Reacting strongly over the poor communication between Rawalpindi and Islamabad police at the time of escape of the high-profile criminal, it was also suggested that the law enforcement agencies should also bridge the communication gap and enhance the vigilance in this regard.
