KARACHI: Amir Chishti and Ali Farhan- owners of Darul Sehat Hospital (DUSH)– fled from court premises after the judicial magistrate rejected their bail pleas in case of Nashwa’s death due to negligence at their HCE.
At the hearing, the lawyer of the accused party commented: “It was the responsibility of the investigation officer to probe the matter properly.” He further added, “In the interim bail, Section-119 has been added and then Section-322 was imposed. A case of unintentional murder could have been made but the investigation officer also added Section-302,” he added, asking the judge to extend the bail.
Nashwa’s father, Qaiser Ali, had registered an FIR against the hospital administration for negligence, but had later sought inclusion of Section 302 (murder charges) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC), against the accused.
The DUSH owners had initially managed to secure bail from the trial court against a surety of Rs300,000 each. Their bail was extended once in the last hearing, but this time the court rejected their plea to extend the bail.
As soon as the court announced its verdict, both the accused fled from the court premises.
