KARACHI: The health department Sindh has posted Dr Shagufta as Police Surgeon Karachi on Tuesday.
An official of health department Sindh told PPI that Dr Shagufta was recently promoted from 19 to 20 grade. She is first woman who was appointed as Police Surgeon Karachi. But strangely, she is expected to retire from her post on 30 December 2015. She was posted as Police surgeon Karachi on vacant post.
The post of Police Surgeon Karachi has been lying vacant in the city since over one month due to which all administrative works in medico-legal departments of three major and six other hospitals have badly been affected, while the salaries, important files and other official works also remain disturbed in medic-legal department.
It is pertinent to mention here that Police Surgeon Karachi Dr Jalil Qadir had been transferred in Chemical Examination Department Sindh on 30 October by provincial health government and since then, the post was lying vacant in the city.
