Aug 29 MENDHAR A senior official from the health department on Tuesday thrashed three media persons in Mendhar area of Poonch district.

Reports and eyewitnesses Said that a woman Maqbool Bi wife of Mohd Rafiq of Dharana, Malikpur was brought to the sub-district hospital Mendhar by her family on Tuesday at around 3:30 pm after she complained of chest pain.

They said the people accompanying the ailing woman failed to find any doctor inside the hospital and in the residential quarters adjacent to the health centre. Later they called some media persons to highlight the woes, the common people suffer, they said.

Soon after three media persons M S Nazki, Tazeem Qazmi, and Tariq Khan reached the SDH Mendhar, they also found that no doctor was available in the hospital. The media persons started reporting the sufferings of patients at the sub-district hospital by taking videos through their mobile phones, which irked the BMO concerned Dr Parvaiz Ahmad Khan who started thrashing the journalists, they said.

The locals alleged that the BMO who assaulted the scribes was in an inebriated state and also used abusive language against them.

"The BMO slapped and kicked me thrice. He even lifted the gas cylinder meant for patients’ oxygen and threw that on me. My left leg has been injured," M S Nazki alleged.

Nazki said the BMO also thrashed the two other scribes – Tazeem Qazmi and Tariq Khan – accompanying him.

Later Nazki was hospitalized.

Following the incident, the patients, their attendants and some locals staged a protest demonstration against the “highhandedness” of the health official and the absence of doctors at the SDH.

Meanwhile, Naib Tehsildar Mendhar Tarif Hussain Shah and SHO Mendhar Mohd Amin reached the spot and assessed the situation.

When contacted, CMO, Poonch Dr Mumtaz Bhatti Said that he was in Jammu for some official meeting. "I will look into the matter," he said.

SSP Poonch Rajiv Panday also said that he will look into the matter.

Asked about locals alleging that BMO was drunk at the time of the incident, SSP said that he will take up the issue with the CMO whether his deputy was drunk or not.
