A well-known Karachi-based eye surgeon, Dr Azam Khan, has alleged that he was beaten in a private hospital by a government officer named Khizer who also shoved a senior lady doctor present there.
The surgeon submitted a complaint in Newtown Police Station and requested a case to be registered against the government officer. Dr Azam works in a private hospital located on Stadium Road.
Dr Azam, in his application, mentioned that Khizar’s wife had undergone eye surgery at his hospital.
However, Khizar entered his clinic on Wednesday and insulted and pushed his senior medical officer — Dr Shahnila.
Upon intervening, the doctor was manhandled and punched by Khizar and as a result his spectacles were broken. Dr Azam’s photos went viral on social media.
