• Quetta: Doctors continue strike, patients suffer


    Doctors in Balochistan have vowed to continue their strike till the fulfillment of their demands.

    The emergency services and operation theatres remained suspended in all public hospitals for the seventh consecutive day, while the outdoor patient departments (OPDs) remained shut for the 41th consecutive day.  

    The suffering patients all across Balochistan have strongly resented the obstinacy of the doctors persisting to continue strike in spite of grave situation in the backdrop of serious terror threats and the government’s failure in retrieving kidnapped Dr. Saeed Ahmad Khan, which triggered the strike.

    The strike is being observed on the call of the Pakistan Medical Association (Balochistan) which was called on after the abduction of Dr Saeed Ahmed Khan, an eye specialist and head of LRBT Hospital, on October 16 from Sariab Road in the provincial capital.
