QUETTA: Some unknown men kidnapped a top neurosurgeon in Quetta on Thursday night.
According to reports, Dr Sheikh Ibrahim Khalil, who worked here at the Civil Hospital Quetta, was allegedly kidnapped near his home when he returning from a private hospital. His car was recovered near his residence in Shahbaz Town with broken windows.
According to provincial home minister, Mir Saleem Ahmed Khoso the police and Levies had been alerted for safe recovery of the kidnapped neurosurgeon.
In his statement Khoso also condemned the incident, and hoped that the surgeon will be recovered very soon and that the kidnappers would be in the authorities’ custody.
According to police, Dr Khalil was allegedly abducted while he was on his way home in Shahbaz Town. While his car — with the broken windows — was recovered by authorities, the neurosurgeon could not be reached at his mobile phone.
Further, the deputy inspector-general (DIG) for Quetta stated that while it was quite likely that Dr Khalil was kidnapped, he could not make a definitive comment.
On the other hand, the Pakistan Medical Association (PMA), Young Doctors Association (YDA), and the Bolan Medical Teachers Association (BMTA) have also condemned the alleged abduction.
The PMA has called an emergency meeting at the Civil Hospital later today, whereas the BMTA has issued a call for a province-wide boycott, starting today, of all government hospitals’ Outpatient Departments (OPDs).
