"Around two dozen villages of the constituency are situated on international border during cease fire violation the injured patients are referred to Sub district hospital. Non-availability of sufficient manpower in SDH Nowshera, the doctors available here referred these patients to GMCH Jammu many of them died on way", sources said, adding that not only border patient, the accidental case are also referred to said hospital because the hospital is situated on Jammu-Poonch national highway.
