Woman allegedly raped at Services Hospital in Lahore
LAHORE: Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid has set up a three-member inquiry committee to investigate allegations that a woman was sexually assaulted at Services Hospital in Lahore.
According to Geo News, Shadman police has registered a FIR against unknown persons.
According to the FIR, the 35-year-old woman was admitted at Services Hospital where she underwent surgery for hemorrhoids and was discharged later in the evening.
“As her pain increased at night, the woman was taken to Sheikh Zayed Hospital where it was found that she had been allegedly raped,” the FIR added.
The inquiry committee head, however, said that no evidence of rape was found during the initial investigation.
Dr Ayaz said the inquiry will be completed today.
A press release issued by Services Hospital medical superintendent said that a medical board comprising four lady doctors had been formed for the woman’s medical examination and found no evidence of rape.
“On the woman’s request, however, samples have been taken and sent to police for forensic testing,” the press release said.
