MIRPURKHAS - The Pakistan Medical Association has strongly condemned the incident in which some anti-social elements manhandled renowned Dr Javaid Ahmed Khan and ransacked his private clinic here the other day.
As per details, Dr Javaid had tried his best to provide first aid to an ailing baby in his clinic. Later, the baby was shifted to the civil hospital where she died. Heirs of the baby and some other anti-social elements attacked the doctor’s private clinic, manhandled him and his staff and also ransacked the furniture and glasses.
