FAISALABAD: The relatives of a youth who died after he was given a drip at a private hospital staged a protest demonstration here on Saturday alleging the doctor had been negligent. The protestors blocked the Madina Town Road and demanded that the doctor “responsible for the death” be immediately arrested. Muhammad Rashid, one of the protestors, said Jamshaid Haidar, 22, a resident of Mohallah Yousuf Abad, was taken to the hospital but his condition deteriorated after the doctor gave him a drip. Rashid said he had been Jamshaid’s attendant. He said he had told the doctor that the patient’s condition was worsening but “the doctor did not pay attention.” The protest ended when Madina Town police assured the protestors of action in accordance with law.
