- Alleged kidney theft case emerges at Lahore’s Jinnah Hospital.
- The victim, who visited the hospital for abdominal pain treatment.
- The case has sparked controversy, with conflicting accounts from the victim and the police.
In an unsettling turn of events at Jinnah Hospital in Lahore, a doctor is accused of stealing a patient’s kidney by luring him under the guise of government-sponsored medical treatment.
The victim, a resident of Burewala, recounted his distressing experience, which began when he sought medical attention for abdominal pain at the hospital in July of this year. Dr. Zafar Sultan and an individual named Mushtaq reportedly persuaded him to accompany them for a checkup, subsequently taking him to a residence, purportedly for further examination.
During his stay at this undisclosed location, the victim claimed that the suspects informed him of a Rs20,000 discount, allegedly linked to his government-issued health card. After returning home and consulting another physician for a follow-up, he was shocked to learn that one of his kidneys had been surgically removed without his consent.
Umar Farid, the aggrieved patient, promptly filed a case against the suspects. However, he expressed his disappointment as the police initially arrested one of the accused but later released him. He now fervently appeals to the authorities for justice to be served in his case.
Conversely, law enforcement officials have presented a different perspective on the matter, suggesting that the victim had willingly sold his kidney to the doctor. They have disclosed that an ongoing investigation into the incident is currently underway.
