LAHORE:


The Lahore General Hospital (LGH) on Friday suspended from service a clerk for allegedly raping a patient on April 4.


The LGH administration said that the suspension was ordered soon after the Factory Area police station confirmed that they had registered a complaint against the man.

According to the FIR, Muhammad Rizwan, who has been missing since April 4, abducted the 29-year-old victim, a resident of Gojra, with help from two accomplices and took her to a quarter on Ghazi Road in Millat Park, where she was raped.

Talking to The Express Tribune, an LGH official said, “An investigation has begun. We are trying to establish where and when this happened.” He said it had yet to be confirmed who the quarter, mentioned in the FIR, belonged to. He said it was definitely not a hospital quarter. He said the hospital administration was also trying to reach the victim, who according to the police, had gone back to her home town.

Factory Area police said the victim had registered the FIR on April 4. They said she had identified only one person in the FIR. They said the victim told them that she had come to Lahore to seek treatment. They said they had identified the area, where she said she had been raped and later abandoned, as Millat Park on Ghazi Road. They said the medico-legal report of the examination, conducted on April 5, had confirmed that she had been raped.
