KARACHI: President PMA Sind Dr Samrina Hashmi, Dr Pervaiz Anjum President Elect Pakistan Orthopaedics Association, Dr Ismail Memon Joint Secretary PMA Karachi, Dr Habib Soomro former Secretary General PMA Centre and others had a meeting with IG Sind Shahid Kamran Baloch at his office.
Additional IG Ghulam Shabbir Shiekh and AIG operations Naeem Shiekh were also present. We showed our deepest concerns over continuous kidnapping of doctors in Interior of Sind. Four doctors had been kidnapped in last one month; out of those two were kidnapped in the last two days. Dr Mohan and Dr Nasrullah belong to Badin district. Kidnappings had never been reported from Badin in the last few years.
We also shared with him the cases of money extortion in Karachi; every 5th doctor is receiving calls for money, and callers threatening them.
The IG assured the delegation of taking steps in this regard. He also appointed Naeem Ahmed Shaikh as a focal person to coordinate with the doctors.
