PESHAWAR: A security guard was examining patients at the Khyber Teaching Hospital in Peshawar according to a notification issued by the hospital director on Tuesday.

The director took notice of the incident after a photo of the guard interacting with patients went viral on social media and constituted an inquiry committee to remove those responsible.

The notification asked the chairman and another senior hospital administrator to “submit recommendation why the above officials should not be terminated for incompetence”.

“The services of the following are hereby charge sheeted on account of allowing a security guard to examine the patients, with immediate effect”

The inquiry committee has been asked to submit a report within three days.
