Nurses in Civil Hospital Faisalabad thrashed a ward boy after he allegedly tried to sexually assault a trainee nurse on Friday.
The nurses beat up the ward boy when the trainee informed them about the attempted assault. The ward boy's colleagues misbehaved with journalists when they reached there to cover the incident.
The hospital's medical superintendent said the ward boy has been suspended and police will be asked to take action against him.
The nurses are still protesting and demanding action against the ward boy.
In a similar incident, nurses thrashed a doctor accused of sexual harassment at the Civil Hospital, Mirpurkhas on February 19.
A video footage shows the doctor, believed to Ramesh Hotlani, in a torn up shirt being beaten up by several people as his colleagues make efforts to rescue him.
Nurses thrash doctor over 'sexual harassment' in Mirpurkhas
The other doctors eventually managed to intervene to save Hotlani, accused of resorting to sexually harassing female nurses during the night.
In November last year, a Pakistani doctor in the UK assaulted a student nurse and asked her to have an affair with him. The doctor, who was not fired, blamed ‘cultural norms’ for his behavior.
The student nurse was left ‘shaken up and distraught’ and informed a tribunal that the attack had left her unable to focus on her studies or trust male co-workers.
The father of two was compelled to sign the Sex Offender Register for five years due to his attack.
