Doctors to boycott OPDs today over claim KP health minister tortured Dr Ziauddin

PESHAWAR: A representative body of doctors announced late Tuesday they would boycott the outpatient departments (OPD) at all hospitals across the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province.

According to the KP Doctors Council, their primary demand is to register a first information report (FIR) against the provincial health minister, Hisham Inamullah Khan, for allegedly torturing Dr Ziauddin at the Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH).

The provincial minister, on the other hand, claimed that Nausherwan Burki, the cousin of Prime Minister Imran Khan, was egged by Dr Ziauddin. When he reached the hospital, he, too, was attacked, he asserted, adding that he was saved by his bodyguards.

Some doctors are trying to hinder reforms in the province, Hisham Khan noted.

In addition, KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan took notice of the incident and has ordered an inquiry into the matter.
