Karachi: President Pakistan Paediatric Association PPA Center Prof Dr Iqbal Memon on Saturday urged the government and law enforcement agencies LEA to ensure safe recovery of kidnapped doctors.
He showed his deep concern over raising incidents of kidnapping of doctors for ransom. He said physicians Dr Abdullah Memon was abducted from Pir Jo Goth, Khairpur on 6th September and Dr Manan was kidnapped from Quetta few days ago but it is irony that they could still not be recovered.
Memon lamented that if educated cream of society is not protected then who will serve our ailing humanity in the country. He said sense of security is important for doctors, otherwise they could not discharge their duties at their best.
He said protection of doctors is the responsibility of state and law enforcement agencies, but unfortunately, they had failed to provide protection to medical fraternity. He said those doctors performing duties in remote areas of province should be provided protection and safety.
He demanded of the provincial government and other highups to provide safe recovery of two doctors as soon as possible in order to end insecurity prevalent among the doctors community.
