RAWALPINDI: The relatives of an 11-year-old boy who died in the emergency department of the District Headquarters Hospital (DHQ) in Rawalpindi protested in the hospital the other day.
Nayyar had reportedly fallen down from the roof of his house and was critically injured in Hassanabdal about five days ago. His father had rushed him to the DHQ.
However, as doctors at the emergency ward of the DHQ tended to the boy’s wounds, Nayyar succumbed to his injuries and died.
After the boy’s death, his family placed his body at Fawara Chowk in Raja Bazaar and blocked one of the busiest intersections in the garrison city. The protesters accused the doctors of negligence and urged the government to initiate legal action against them.
